“I believe him 100 percent,” said his father. “I have spent days and days with the staff of the Manchester High. They told me they gave the information to the police. We were totally surprised that he was put in custody yesterday.”

Lambert said school officials had told him that his son would not be expelled, but they learned Thursday that he has now been barred from returning to school. His parents, who had planned to send him to college in the fall, are now worried about their son’s future education.

“When we heard the prosecutor say the school is afraid, that’s a lie. They’re not afraid of Gabriel,” his father continued.

“When he told me that night he reported it I thought, ‘Ah, they’ll suspect you,’ and I was right,” said his father.

Lambert’s attorney, Patrick O’Malley, declined comment outside court.
