The family of Jack Eichorst, 18, son of former Huskers Athletic Director Shawn Eichorst, is asking for privacy following Jack's appearance in court Monday morning on sexual assault charges

The statement from Sean J. Brennan of Brennan & Nielsen Law Offices reads: "Jack is an amazing boy whose compassion, character, and giving heart, are admired by his loving parents, family and friends. His autism has never slowed his passion for life or his trust in others. Thankfully he is now home and I ask that the public respect the family's privacy during this difficult time."

Jack Eichorst was taken into custody on Friday after Lincoln Police received a report that he had sexual intercourse with a 12-year-old boy in October.
