Three western Nebraska school officials accused of failing to report accusations of sexual abuse of a student have avoided criminal charges by agreeing to staff training.

North Platte attorney Bob Lindemeier, who represents Maxwell Public Schools Superintendent Danny Twarling and high school principal Aubrey Boucher, said Friday that the school board and Lincoln County attorney have reached an agreement.

Twarling, Boucher and wrestling coach Ryan Jones were cited in September on suspicion of failure to report child abuse or neglect. Nebraska State Patrol investigators have said the three had been told that a member of the high school wrestling team had been held down by other team members and sodomized with a soda bottle.

Lindemeier said school officials had investigated the allegations and determined they were unfounded.
