Today, Marcelo's mother Rosario Lucero sat in the courtroom as two of the young Caucasian Crew faced justice. With her surviving son Joselo and daughter Isabel, Rosario Lucero sat three rows behind defendants Nicholas Hausch and Jordan Dasch, who were both sitting with their parents. Hausch's mother was holding her son's arm. The atmosphere was somber and quiet and there were no exchanges between the families.
When asked how she felt about the court proceedings, Mrs. Lucero responded, "I feel sadness for the mothers of those kids, because they're going through a lot of pain, however we are all human beings and we don't have a right to take a life."
The judge adjourned the case until April 1, 2009.
