[VO-NAT]
[SUPER=03-Durham, NC; :00]

Redick, two Duke soccer players and two other students were found in a room in the Blackwell dormitory on April 1st where police say there was a very strong smell of marijuana. The police searched the room and did not find any drugs, but did find a homemade bong. Neither Redick nor any of the other students were charged at the time, instead police referred them to the office of the Dean of Students. The case has now been resolved administratively and JJ will not be punished by the school. According to sources close to the situation, Redick was in the room to check e-mail from a professor he was meeting with the following day about a class and did not participate in any wrongful activities going on in the room.
Ken Redick, J.J. father says " J.J. made an error in judgment, which was being in a room where someone was smoking marijuana. He recognizes that he made an error by not just getting up and leaving." His father went on to say "the thing J.J. struggles with is that sometimes he just wants to be just another kid, he wants to be somebody without a face and without a name. I keep telling him he's not like everybody else and with that comes greater responsibilities."
