TEHACHAPI, Calif. - The Kern County District Attorney's Office announced Thursday that animal cruelty charges will not be filed against Robert Hutton, a Tehachapi Unified School District maintenance worker.
Hutton was accused of carrying out animal abuse by using the so-called 'box of horrors' to trap unwanted and nuisance animals around Tehachapi High School.
The District Attorney's Office said that Kern County Animal Control did a thorough investigation, but no evidence of cat remains was found.
Due to the lack of evidence, criminal charges will not be filed.
