Charges against WSU defendant continued without a finding

Clay, Jr., 21 receiving a continuation without a finding for one year, according to his attorney Christopher D. Parker of New Britain, CT. If Clay meets all conditions, after a year the charges are dismissed, Parker said.

Both defendants and the victim were Westfield State students at the time of the arrest.
Subsequent to the arrest, Willis withdrew from the University for unrelated reasons, according to a statement that he made to The Westfield News after a November 5 hearing on the matter. Clay, just graduated in December with a degree in business marketing.
At a December 18 hearing for Clay, Parker told the court that his client was waiting for medical records from the victim as there were “supposed to be serious injuries.” The court clerk said they did not have the medical records. The case was then continued by agreement until Thursday’s date.
