Lopez made his first court appearance on Tuesday, but the case was then postponed until October 25. Abraham Lopez faces the maximum sentence of life in prison. Superintendent John Deasy says he wishes that police would have informed and notified the district about Lopez's release so that measures could have been taken to prevent the attack. "We certainly would like to have known the specifics that were in the document, that could have been helpful to us," said Deasy. Despite this comment from the Superintendent, during the week before the stabbing, Santana's mother had notified the school of his release, and the campus security had been warned of him posing a potential threat. Regardless, the school's security is being reviewed, and additional efforts are being made to inform students about avoiding abusive relationships.
