The Kansas Department of Social and Rehabilitation Services is disputing claims from a military boarding school that the agency investigated and found no validity to abuse allegations made by a 14-year-old former cadet.

The boy suffered two broken legs during four days in August that he attended St. John's Military School.

SRS spokeswoman Angela DeRocha told The Associated Press its
investigation is under way and the agency has reached no conclusion.

Saline County Attorney Ellen Mitchell said Wednesday that Salina police asked her to review the case for possible prosecution. Mitchell says she concluded there was insufficient evidence to show a crime was committed beyond a reasonable doubt.

The teen is among seven former cadets whose families are suing the school. St. John's has settled nine abuse lawsuits since 2006.
