UPDATE: Young Girl Reportedly Sexually Assaulted on Natrona County School Bus
UPDATE: K2 Radio News has received a statement from Dr. Dean Broughton, head of Student Support Services at NCSD on the investigation...
"We take every allegation of harm to a child with the utmost seriousness. In this situation, Department of Family Services and the Natrona County Sheriffs's Office were notified and we are cooperating fully with their investigation. Please appreciate that we, as a School District, must cease any investigation on our part until the formal investigation is complete so that we in no way taint their efforts. Again, nothing is more important than safety of children. Tomorrow morning, kids will be safe on NCSD #1 school buses."
UPDATE: District spokesman Kelly Eastes confirmed to K2 Radio News that The Sheriff's Department and the Department of Family Services are investigating, but had no more details than that.
Sheriff's Department spokesman Mike Steinberg told K2 News today that the charge is under investigation, and disagreed with the contention in the Facebook post that anything is being "swept under the rug." He assured us that all charges will be thoroughly investigated.
