A bullying incident that took place on a school bus has resulted in 4 students being prosecuted.

Williams County Sheriff Steve Towns issued a rlease on the situation, but did not indicate when the incident happened or give any specifics as to its nature. In the news release Sheriff Towns did note that two schools cooperated in the investigation.

Reports indicate that four youths were charged in juvenile court and prosecuted by Williams County Prosecutor Katie Zartman.

Prosecutor Zartman and Williams County Sheriff Steven Towns said that they made the announcement about the situation because they want to "send a clear message to young people in the county that incidents of any bullying nature will be investigated and prosecuted when evidence is clear".

The statement went on to say that "Bullying is a very serious issue that can effect children well into adulthood. Young people have enough to deal with and the mistreatment of others whether it is physical or verbally tormenting another can be a crime and will be pursued by law enforcement when applicable".
