One Step Closer To Court:

The investigation into an alleged sexual assault against a former Butler High teacher, could be one step closer to going to court. Former Band Director, Anthony Shelton, is accused of having sex multiple times, with a 16-year-old student. Investigators tell News 12, they're talking to the alleged victim, and are interviewing more people at Butler. We're told the case could go before the D.A.'s offfice before they file charges, if they find enough evidence

Parents Fight For School:

Parents are fired up in a small town in Bamber County, in an effort to save their children's elementary school from shutting down.

It's a problem the school superintendent says they're aware of.
