Albany -- A Dougherty County Grand Jury has refused to indict a fired Dougherty County Instructor who was caught on videotape commanding a student to push and hit another student.

The Grand Jury no billed the case against Ronald Causby, the former S.T.A.R. program coordinator for Dougherty County Schools. They also did not indict the student who did the pushing in the tape, 18-year- old Marcus Langston.

Langston was a student from New Covenant Academy, a private school where Causby also worked. They were both charged with misdemeanor counts of Simple Battery and Hazing.

The District Attorney would not show us the videotape, but the Grand Jury did watch it. "This was one that could go either way I think. I think the school system has already taken some action too," said Dougherty D.A. Ken Hodges.

Causby was fired by the School System when they saw the tape, and the S.T.A.R. program was temporarily shut down. The New Covenant Academy decided to close.

Deputy School Superintendent Carlos Keith said they hope to resume the S.T.A.R. program after instructors are re-trained.
