MISSOULA - The Missoula County Sheriff’s Office has finished their investigation into the Frenchtown school racial threats case and the findings will be reviewed by the Missoula Youth Court -- not the Missoula County Attorney’s Office -- as first reported.
The Sheriff’s Office reported last week two Frenchtown High School students posted inappropriate, violent and racist content via their social media. The two students have been placed on suspension.
Missoula County Attorney Kirsten Pabst told MTN News that her office is not reviewing the case as we were first told by the Missoula County Sheriff's Office.
"The District became aware of racially derogatory and threatening social media posts made by two Frenchtown students over the weekend. Due to the threatening nature of the posts, the students have been removed from school while the District investigates this incident. The District will follow the law, its policies and its procedures when determining appropriate disciplinary action," Frenchtown School Superintendent Randy Cline said in a statement.
The Montana Human Rights Network has also been made aware of this incident and the investigation is ongoing.
