Shaw, along with five other black teenage boys, became media sensations after they were charged in 2006 with attempted murder after getting into a fight with a young white man at their high school in the town of Jena, La. Supporters said the six young men were being overcharged, and noted that the fight came after a series of racially charged incidents at the school, including the hanging of nooses from a tree on the campus.
