The family of a man convicted of brutally beating a West Virginia Student four years ago is speaking out.
It's been almost three years since a jury found Austin Vantrease, and another man, guilty in connection with a fight that put Ryan Diviney into a coma.
The Vantrease family has been relatively quiet since that incident, but now they have a website that has a few details they feel haven't been reported.
Gale Vantrease, Austin's mother, told 5 News on Thursday that she realized the site probably won't be very popular. However, she mentioned it needs to be seen.
"We're not saying he's innocent," Gale said about her son. "We're not saying he's perfect, but we are saying that he's not the only one to blame. There's not always not one person to blame."
Vantrease added she feel bad for Ryan Diviney and they think about him everyday.
