KALISPELL- The county attorney's office plans to sit down next week and review the Kalispell Police Department's report on the Glacier incident, and evaluate the case.
Student Resource Officer Jason Parce concluded his investigation Wednesday, in which time Parce decided to formally charge two students.
One of the juveniles will face sexual assault charges and the other is charged with accountability to sexual assault.
Parce says he hopes this investigation will show students what kind of consequences can come from bullying--however "harmless" the student thinks it is.
"You never know how the other person is going to feel. And that essentially is makes it criminal or not criminal, is how this other person accepts the behavior--especially when it crosses the line."
Parce also hopes this case will encourage students to stand up for themselves when they are being bullied or hazed.
