Tehama D.A. Will Not File Charges in Alleged Quarne Assault Case

The Tehama County District Attorney's Office announced Tuesday that no charges will be filed in the investigation into an accusation that Glenn County Superintendent of Schools Tracey Quarne struck a former roommate, an 18-year-old Orland student.

District Attorney Gregg Cohen said the January 28th incident was carefully reviewed. In the end, his office decided not to file charges.

The case involved 18-year-old Brandon Snyder who was staying at Quarne's home at the time.

Quarne, who has denied the accusations, explained earlier this year that he was allowing Snyder to live in his home as he completed his high school diploma as he had done before with other students involved in bad family situations.

After initially reviewing the case, the Glenn County District Attorney's office requested Cohen's office to take over the case review because of a concern over conflict of interest.
