SARATOGA, Calif. -- A school superintendent says officials could not expel three boys charged with sexually battering a classmate last fall, even after she hanged herself and her family complained that a humiliating photo of the assault was being circulated.

Saratoga schools superintendent Bob Mistele made the disclosure on Wednesday about the three teens suspected of assaulting 15-year-old Audrie Pott at a party he said was not on campus or related to school.

He says two of the three boys were kicked off the football team.

He explained that education is a fundamental right while participation in sports is a privilege.
