7. Gray area.
Because we don't know what treatment he was receiving.

His parents apparently accepted his diagnosis, privately, that is. I am hopeful that they also sough appropriate treatment privately.

IMO, they did their son a disservice by denying his condition publicly, but I very much hope that was the extent of their disservice to him. If it wasn't, well, I can't imagine what we have to say about it would factor into the punishment they are already receiving, IYKWIM.
