No Charges Will Be Filed in School Fight Involving Oklahoma Teen Nex Benedict

No charges will be filed in connection with a fight that Oklahoma teen Nex Benedict was involved in a day before they died, the Tulsa County district attorney said Thursday.

Benedict, a member of the 2SLGBTQ community, got into a physical fight with several other students in a bathroom at Owasso High School on Feb. 7.

“From all of the evidence gathered, this fight was an instance of mutual combat,” Tulsa County District Attorney Steve Kunzweiler said in a lengthy press release. “I do not have a reasonable belief that the State of Oklahoma could sustain its burden of proof beyond a reasonable doubt if charges were presented for prosecution.”
