Avonte Oquendo Slipped Past School Security Desk: Lawyer

December 28, 2013

Avonte Oquendo, a missing Queens teenager who disappeared from his school on October 4th, slipped past the school security desk, according to David Perecman, a lawyer representing the family. In a story in the New York Daily News, Perecman refers to an official report written by Riverview School staffers. Perecman states that the first mention in the report of the police doesn't come until more than an hour after Avonte's disappearance. 

Perecman filed a $25 million notice of claim against New York City on behalf of Oquendo’s family on Oct. 9.
