Federal prosecutors on Tuesday closed their investigation into Lower Merion School District’s secret use of software to track student laptops, saying they found no evidence that anyone intentionally committed a crime.
The decision, announced by U.S. Attorney Zane Memeger, ended a six-month probe by the FBI into allegations that district employees might have spied on students through webcams on their school-issued laptops.
In a brief statement released by his office, Memeger didn’t disclose details of the investigation, but said agents and prosecutors concluded that charges were unwarranted.
