Misconduct investigation

Twin Bridges’ boys basketball team

The Falcons’ boys basketball team is expected to have a full roster for the 2020 State Class C Tournament.

Twin Bridges’ school board held a closed session to conclude the misconduct investigation involving the boys’ basketball team March 5. Another investigation is ongoing in the Madison County Attorney’s Office.

The alleged misconduct that took place on the bus ride back from West Yellowstone Feb. 8, including the involved four individuals, is confidential. But House Bill 640 applied to the investigation according to the Madison County Sheriff’s Office. The law requires local law enforcement to complete an investigation of reports from the Department of Public Health and Human Services regarding child abuse and neglect. House Bill 640 defines DPHHS employees as mandatory reporters, which requires an investigation. Failure to report a potential child sexual abuse or sexual exploitation is a felony.

The county attorney will make a recommendation if a crime was committed in the near future. The Twin Bridges School Board spent about six hours in a closed session to determine further actions, which were also kept confidential.
