( james ) the fate of the man accused of murdering sierra lamar is now in the hands of a jury. the defense and prosecution have now rested their cases. but not before a last word from the prosecution. since the body of sierra lamar has never been found, the prosecution's case against antolin garcia- torres is centered primarily on d-n-a evidence. in their rebuttal to the defense's closing arguments, the district attorney told the jury there is no explanation for the d-n-a other than - garcia torres is the killer.
4:09 am
deliberating today. they can acquit garcia - torres or find him guilty of either second or first degree murder. a first- degree murder conviction carries a special circumstance allegation. and that would make garcia - torres eligible for the death penalty.

( james ) a big story we are following this morning... the california senate has voted to move up the state's presidential primary to the third tuesday in march instead of the current june primary. the legislation says june's primary is too late to give state voters a say in selecting the republican and democratic nominees for president. they also say an early primary would make candidates more likely to address issues important to californians. the bill is now headed to the assembly. ( james ) the albany high students disciplined in connection with racists posts on instagram are now suing the
4:18 am
school. the group claims their first ammendment rights were violated. and as kron4's charles clifford reports, they want their records wiped clean. well, here at albany high school a group of students are pushing back against the administration saying they were wrongly disciplined and their rights were violated.earlier this year, racist images appeared on an albany high school student's instagram account. some of the images targeted other students at the school and at least one member of the faculty. the school eventually disciplined more than a dozen kids including several who only liked or commented on the images. sot this is really an issue of protected speech.attorney darryl yorkey reprensents four of the disciplined students. he says three were suspended and one is facing expulsion. in a lawsuit filed against the school, the students are claiming their first amendments rights were violated because instagram isn't owned or operated by the school, therefore the school doesn't have the right to punish them for something posted on that service.sotit doesn't matter what they said. it was on a platform that was outside the school. the school has essentially over reached their bounds. they are trying
4:19 am
to regulate whats happening in the home.in response, the albany school district released a statement thursday saying that "the district is currently reviewing the lawsuit and will take appropriate action in responding to it."sotit's unnaccepatble. it shouldn't be tolerated. zero tolerance means just that.lerond mallard is the father of one of the students who was targeted by the instagram images. he feels that because pictures his daughter and other kids were posted on instagram, it was appropriate for the school district to cast a wide net in disciplining those involved.sot these kids were going around taking photos, posting them and making these disparaging remarks. i would expect that my daughter would be in a learning environment that's free from that.to try to spin this some other way is misguided, wrong headed and it's not the lessons and the values that you want to be giving to young children. now, this lawsuit only involved the instgram images. it does not involve some of the alleged racist gestures and statements made on campus earlier this year. thursday afternoon, the school district issues a statement in response to the lawsuit. the statement reads, "the district is currently reviewing the lawsuit and will take appropriate action in responding to it." in albany, charles clifford kron 4 news.

"it's absolutely insane we are in a place with some of the best companies in the world this should not be happening in silicon valley." parks and recreation run the before and after school programs at 6 campuses across the district.director sharon ranals says about 600 students in the district use the service but there are less than 40 spots left. sot: sharon ranals, director of parks and recreation south san francisco//"all three of my kids went to before and after school care. i was a single mom for most of those years i wouldn't have made it without it. so i'm very sympathetic with these families."ranals
4:21 am
says the high demand is most likely because of a low unemployement rate and a need for both parents in each household to work.returning students enrolled last year have priority so it's incoming kids whose parents are concerned if they'll get in. so much so some hired people like coleen charles through the app task grab it to sit in line for them.sot: coleen charles, hired to sit in line// "i'm sitting here in line for like 27 hours so they can go to work."the program it isn't free. before and after care five days a week costs $399 every month.this coming year the cost could go up by 5 % to $416 if a child care vote is passed in june.parks and rec work with families around their pay periods, set up installments, and help find scholarships to cover the expenses. in south san francisco ella sogomonian, kron4 news...
