CHARLOTTESVILLE, Va. (WUSA) - The family of George Huguely issued this statement on Thursday after the sentencing.
Today is a sad day for our family. The past twenty-eight months have been the most difficult in our lives. We love George and will always support him.
We continue to believe what Mr. Lawrence said within hours of meeting George, on May 3, 2010, "Yeardley's death was not intended but an accident with a tragic outcome."
Yeardley will always be in our hearts. We hope and pray that the passage of time will bring some semblance of peace and healing to each and everyone who has been affected by this tragedy most especially the Love family.
