AUSTIN (KXAN) — The principal of Anderson High School sent home a letter to students and parents Tuesday indicating there will not be any charges for an alleged sexual assault that happened on campus last month.

On Sept. 15, the school said a student was sexually assaulted on campus and an investigation was underway. The day after the school learned of the incident, the principal said the suspect was neither an intruder nor a staff member.

The principal says the Travis County District Attorney’s Office reviewed the allegations and declined to prosecute the case. “The case is now closed,” wrote Principal Sammi Harrison in Tuesday’s letter.

After the allegation, the school did have additional security officers on hand to “reassure students that they are in a safe learning environment.” provides commenting to allow for constructive discussion on the stories we cover.
