No charges in District 304 ‘Pledge’ incident
GENEVA – There will be no criminal charges filed against the parent involved in an incident last week at Mill Creek Elementary School.
In a news release issued Friday, Kane County State’s Attorney Joe McMahon said that the man, 41-year-old Colin McGroarty, “certainly showed a gross lack of judgment” and the behavior was “lacking in even the most basic common sense,” but McGroarty’s actions were not criminal.
McGroarty, whose children attend the school, became upset Jan. 9 when he said kindergartners left the word “liberty” out of the pledge. McGroarty, who had been volunteering at the school on a weekly basis, said after students said the pledge, they recited the school’s creed. McGroarty took issue with the students reciting the creed after the pledge.
