Milton Conway tells The Star-Ledger his 19-year-old son, Michael, was with two other teens charged with robbing and threatening 15-year-old Lennon Baldwin. But the father says Conway never meant to hurt Baldwin, describing his son as a “stupid teenager.”

“He was trying to be involved in a way to help facilitate a peace between the parties,” Milton Conway, his son standing at his side, told The Star-Ledger Thursday. “And, in doing so, (he) wound up in their midst when things happened to go in a different direction.”



Michael  has also been barred from Morristown High, his senior prom and graduation because of  threats blaming him for directly causing Baldwin’s death, his father said. School officials would not comment on the father’s claims.

Baldwin committed suicide three weeks after authorities say he was assaulted and robbed by the two juveniles, who authorities have not named because of their ages.

Morris County Prosecutor Robert Bianchi says Baldwin was terrorized and pressured by the juveniles at one point to tell school officials that he had not been assaulted.

The Associated Press contributed to this report.
