WACO, TX (KXXV) -

Investigators decided that there is insufficient evidence to charge anyone in the case of a Live Oak student who received rope burns after an incident on a school field trip.

The family filed a lawsuit against Live Oak Classical School, claiming that on April 28, three white students put a rope around the neck of a black 12-year-old, leaving rope burns. The family believed that the incident, that took place on a class trip, had been racially motivated.

In documents obtained by News Channel 25, due to insufficient evidence, Blanco County Sheriff’s Office Captain Ben Ablon recommended that the case be closed with no further action.
