State Decides Not to Retry Suspended West Fargo Teacher Aaron Knodel

The two remaining charges against West Fargo teacher Aaron Knodel are being dropped.

The state has decided not to retry Knodel after a mistrial was called two weeks  on two of the five charges against him.

Knodel was accused of having a sexual relationship with a student in 2009.

The jury was dismissed after one of the juror’s was rushed to the hospital and revealed she hid a history of past sex abuse.

Knodel’s retrial was to begin next Tuesday.
