Lawyer for teen stabbing suspect calls for his release

The lawyer representing the Batavia high school football player accused of stabbing his teammate says his client should be let out of jail.

According to Frank Houch, Antwan Odom’s lawyer, a preliminary hearing was never set for the star Batavia high school football and basketball player and therefore by law he should be released.

Houch says the judge wrongfully increased bail for the 18-year-old and is illegally holding him in the Genesee County Jail.

Odom is accused of stabbing his football teammate Raymond Leach on Ross Street August 4.
