Parents Protest Strip Search

(CENTERTOWN) -- Parents of middle school students in Centertown are so outraged, that they took their complaints to the district attorney's office this morning. On Thursday, 60 seventh and eighth graders were strip searched for a ten dollar bill. This morning, Warren County District Attorney Bill Locke says that the search does not appear criminal, so he referred the parents to the Board of Education. Locke says the search issue was a civil matter.
