An investigation has determined that no criminal charges are warranted in the death of a teenager who was restrained at a school for troubled children.
The finding was issued Thursday by the office of Westchester County District Attorney Janet Difiore. It follows a July medical examiner's ruling that the death of Corey Foster was an accident.
Foster was restrained at the Leake & Watts residential treatment center in Yonkers after an April 18 dispute on a basketball court.
The medical examiner said the 16-year-old suffered cardiac arrest "during an excited state while being subdued."
The D.A.'s office said the 3½ month probe, conducted with police and state investigators, included witness statements from about 55 staff members and residents. Authorities also analyzed surveillance video, medical records and the autopsy report.
