Fargo won't prosecute reporter for school story

Posted: Updated:

Authorities in Fargo have decided not to prosecute a TV journalist for a hidden camera story aimed at revealing holes in security at elementary schools.
    
Valley News Live reporter Mellaney Moore in December walked around schools in Fargo and West Fargo in North Dakota and in neighboring Moorhead, Minn., without permission. In all three cities, entering schools without registering with administrators can result in a misdemeanor charge.
    
Fargo Assistant City Attorney Jason Loos says the school district has worked out a resolution with the TV station and isn't pressing charges.  Valley News Live attorney Lisa Borgen and news director Ike Walker declined comment.
    
School district attorney Joseph Wetch did not immediately respond to an Associated Press request for comment.
