HUNTSVILLE, Ala. (WHNT) - WHNT NEWS 19 has an update on school-related investigation we previously reported.

Investigators with the Huntsville Police Department have found no evidence a Westlawn Middle School teacher inappropriately touched a student.

Police opened the investigation after a mother filed a report claiming the teacher touched her son. School leaders immediately put the teacher on paid administrative leave to determine what happened.

WHNT NEWS 19 has learned School Superintendent Dr. Casey Wardynski has allowed the teacher to return to the classroom.

"In a case like this, where we found out the charges were totally untrue, there isn't anything else that has to occur at this point," said School District Spokesman Keith Ward.

Ward told WHNT NEWS they've made no decision on whether or not the student will be punished.
