"School officials in Pennsylvania's Lower Merion School District
will not face criminal charges for activating a tracking feature on
school-issued webcams that allowed them to capture about 56,000
images of unsuspecting students and their families at home.
"Federal prosecutors said today that they will not file charges
against the district or its employees, according to an Associated
Press report. Investigators found no evidence of criminal intent by
those who activated the feature and/or reviewed the images."
