QUINCY, Wash. (AP) — Grant County prosecutors have decided not to charge a teacher accused of having an 11-year-old girl dragged by other students to the front of their classroom in at Monument Elementary School in Quincy.

Chief Deputy Prosecutor Alan White says video of the incident in December shows four children surrounded the girl, but she wasn’t dragged. Her mother had said she was slapped and kicked as she was pulled forward.

The website iFIBER One News reports substitute teacher Ken Lacey had ordered the sixth-grader to the front of the class to stop her from talking in back of the room. She refused.

White says Lacey showed poor judgment during the incident but did nothing criminal. He has resigned.

The teacher should have perhaps called the principal or another administrator for help, but the actions weren’t criminal, he said.

White said the Quincy Police Department did a thorough investigation of the incident, and they interviewed each of the students.
