NEW BRAUNFELS, Texas -- The 15-year-old charged with aggravated assault in the death of fellow school-mate Logan Davidson sat in a courtroom with his head down and his hands clasped for a brief moment before the hearing Monday morning.

Police have said Logan Davidson was knocked unconscious and hit his head last month during an attack in a school hallway at Canyon High in Comal County. Davidson was taken to a San Antonio hospital where he died the following day.

Defense Attorney Joel Perez said his client regrets the incident. As the teen stood before the judge, the GPS tracking device on his right ankle was visible.

Perez requested the court loosen the restrictions of the teen's house arrest to include visits from family members at his home.

The teen is not allowed to use the Internet except for home schooling. He is not allowed a cell phone and prohibited from using social media. The teen is not allowed to communicate with friends at this time.

County Court at Law #2 Judge Charles Stephens II said his goal was to prevent making the situation any worse for the teen. He advised him any violation of the house arrest would result in immediate detention.
