District Attorney Hillar Moore III, Stephen Gruver and Rae Ann Gruver, the parents of Max Gruver, spoke to reporters Wednesday morning outside a Baton Rouge courthouse and reacted to former LSU student and ex-Phi Delta Theta member Matthew Naquin's sentence in the 2017 alcohol-related hazing death of the 18-year-old Gruver.
Naquin was given five years in prison, but a judge suspended all but 2-1/2 years of the term. Naquin was also sentenced to 1,000 hours of community service and three years probation when released plus he must pay a $1,000 fine.
"Absolutely not," Rae Ann Gruver said when asked if the family feels like Naquin offered an apology. "In his statement there's still no remorse. He does not take any accountability for killing our son."

Naquin, 21, of Fair Oaks Ranch, Texas, was convicted in July of negligent homicide, which carried up to five years behind bars. He did not testify at his trial.
