Fargo Reporter won’t be charged

FARGO, N.D. (AP) — Fargo authorities 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 tells KFGO radio (http://bit.ly/1dKH1MQ) 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 tells the AP the district chose not to press charges because it wants to move forward. He declined further comment.

Mellaney Moore, formerly Peper, is also a former KDHL alum.
