Excerpt:After the [Thursday] morning hearing, Badgley’s lawyer, Mariana Rossman, rushed her client away from the courthouse, telling reporters along the way that Badgley would be exonerated.

Olsen’s lawyer, Michael Murphy, said his client wasn’t present when DeVercelly was drinking.

Murphy said the criminal charge has been difficult for Olsen, a finance major who plans to start his senior year at Rider this fall.

“We’ll get through it,” Murphy said. “We’ll just have to see what the prosecutor has.”
