Issue: Teacher accused of 'strip poker' won't face charges

More Info: Kootenai County prosecutors are not charging a private school teacher accused of playing a strip poker-like card game with young boys during a school camp trip – because they can’t find a state statute under which to charge him. “This conduct, although alarming, does not seem to fit an Idaho crime,” Chief Deputy Prosecutor Lansing Haynes wrote in an office report. But the school principal who reported the allegation to police has been issued a citation – for not acting fast enough.

Question: Did the prosecutor's office act responsibly here?
