Quotes

"Doan Bui's only crime was to ride his bicycle home from a night of fishing," said District Attorney Dan Conley after the verdict. "His death devastated his family and left them without his love, devotion, and support. This case was important to us because they are people of humble means, immigrants with no connections and no one else to speak up for them. Mr. Bui's death was a crime and the defendant had to be held accountable for it."
...The statement says, "Today, those without sick time are oftentimes forced to choose between going to work sick or losing a day's pay, in many casesthreatening the loss of a job. Tragically, many are forced to send a sick child to school to save their income or their job. These are the same individuals who earn the least amount and struggle to provide the basic needs for themselves and their families.”"
"The victim was treated first at St. Margaret's Hospital and then at Boston City Hospital, where a rape kit was performed. Evidence from that kit was maintained for years by Boston Police and uploaded into the FBI's Combined DNA Index System, or CODIS, in 2006 as part of a program to solve cold cases with DNA evidence."
"Clark allegedly followed the victim out of the restaurant and started a physical altercation, during which Clark pulled out a knife. Even after Williamson attempted to retreat, Clark used the knife to stab him in the neck, prosecutors said."
