Grand jury no bills Montessori duct tape case

March 23, 2015 by Phil Major

A Parker County Grand Jury decided Monday afternoon that no criminal charges should be brought in the investigation of a duct taping incident at the Heart2Heart Montessori school in Willow Park.
“The grand jury heard evidence from witnesses on two different days regarding this case,” said Parker County District Attorney Don Schnebly.  “After hearing and seeing all of the evidence, the grand jury determined that no felony charges were appropriate.
“The grand jury’s decision does not have an impact on any civil lawsuit or regulatory matters. In those instances, the burden of proof is lower than it is in criminal matters and the elements of proof are entirely different. The grand jury’s decision just concludes the review process of the criminal investigation,” Schnebly said.
