No charges will be filed against a CASD employee

CHAMBERSBURG, Pa. — No charges will be filed against a Chambersburg Area School District employee who allegedly harassed an eighth-grade female student, police said Thursday.

"As a result of this investigation, it has been determined that the purported conduct did not rise to the level of a criminal act and as such no charges will be filed," Chambersburg police said in a news release.

Pa. woman in serious condition after crash

CHAMBERSBURG, Pa. — Police have released the identity of a woman injured in a traffic accident Monday in the 400 block of West Loudon Street that shut down the street for more than eight hours.

Marcy L. White, 25, of 242 Linden Ave., of Chambersburg, is in serious condition at York (Pa.) Hospital after being flown from Chambersburg Hospital, according to York Hospital spokesman Barry Sparks.
