Dr, Ramey addressed the statement made by guidance counselor Kelly Owens, who knew Turner when he was a student.
Kelly apologized to the district for her statement saying, “In the statement I submitted to the Judge during the criminal proceedings and before sentencing referencing Brock’s character, I made a mistake. Of course he should be held accountable.”
