So here's the latest update form Pleasanton Patch.

http://www.pleasantonweekly.com/news/2014/02/07/no-charges-in-case-where-man-was-left-unconscious-outside-his-home

No charges will be filed against the teens involved in an altercation that left a Middleton Place man bleeding and unconscious outside his Pleasanton home last September.
"The Alameda County District Attorney has chosen not to pursue criminal charges citing lack of sufficient evidence to conclude a public offense was committed," police said Friday.
Today, police said, "the case has been closed and no further investigation is pending."

"The Lamont family has requested that no further media attention be given to the case and that they not be contacted for comment as they would simply like to put the incident behind them and continue to focus on healing," police said Friday.

Here's an update directly from the Lamont Family:

We offer heartfelt thanks to all the wonderful people who have helped, prayed and comforted our family these past months. The tragedy that happened in an instant devastated us on many levels and we will always carry scars. However, we are blessed in many ways. Our faith in God, and our bonds with friends and community have deepened. A single act of evil in no way competes with the love, compassion and decency that we see daily from friends and strangers.

Dave was left for dead but thanks to a wonderful miracle and outstanding medical care, he is now on a journey towards significant recovery. Multiple surgeries and intense rehabilitation have taken their toll but Dave's innate strength and extraordinary work ethic are propelling him through important milestones like breathing independently, relearning to walk, and being able to swallow again. As his family we can love and encourage him but we cannot lift the burden of his physical suffering. Our suffering has been emotional rather than physical. The girls experienced elemental fear, were stripped of innocence and a sense of security. Please know, though, that you have helped lift our burden and we will always be grateful.

We never thought that we would be at the receiving end of the kind of care and giving with which you have gifted us and we are humbled. We will never deserve this outreach but hope to pay it forward to others when we can. All of your many prayers and good thoughts have sustained us and helped us get a miracle started for Dave. Thank you collectively and we will try to thank you individually also where possible. Please keep us in your prayers and good thoughts as we will keep you in ours. The Lamont Family.

Our longtime family friend, David Lamont age 51 of Pleasanton, CA, walked out of his house early Saturday morning to check on some voices he heard in front of his house.

When he didn't return, his wife went to check on him, only to find him lying in the street unconscious laying in a puddle of blood.


Police believe kids from our two local high schools are to blame.


He has been in a coma since late September when the incident took place from the beating.






Mr. Lamont owned his own business and the wife and his two teen daughters have no money coming in right now.

Thank you for the update on David and family. I live in Pleasanton and was stunned to hear of this last year. I think of David and his family, watch for updates, and send prayers. Wishing for many new milestones in recovery for David in 2014!

I will pray for a full recovery for David and for his family to have strength during this horrible ordeal. I hope the kids that did this are caught and punished. So very sad!
