Student Is Charged In Camera Incident

Hartford Courant

WEST HARTFORD -- It was a busy day at Conard High School Thursday, what with the release of scores of crickets in the cafeteria as a senior prank and the arrest of student council president Francisco Acevedo Jr., after he video-recorded what he said was excessive use of force by a police officer in the midst of the chaos.

Acevedo was suspended and faces the prospect of not being able to graduate with his classmates Wednesday or attend the school's post-graduation party. Acevedo, 18, and his attorney, Jon Schoenhorn, were in federal court Friday seeking a restraining order that would permit Acevedo to graduate. They also want a judge to order West Hartford police not to tamper with or destroy Acevedo's digital camera and memory card, which Officer James Parizo took from him at the school.
