SANTA ROSA, Calif. (AP) — Prosecutors say they will not file charges against a Northern California mother accused of grabbing the throat of a 12-year-old boy she suspected of bullying her daughter.

The Sonoma County District Attorney's Office announced the decision on Thursday, saying there were conflicting witness statements, and that prosecutors could not prove beyond a reasonable doubt that 30-year-old Delia Garcia-Bratcher attacked the boy.

Garcia-Bratcher was arrested on suspicion of child abuse in the May confrontation at a Santa Rosa, California elementary school.

Investigators say two students told police they saw Garcia-Bratcher grab the boy by the throat.

Garcia-Bratcher's attorney, Ben Adams, has said his client did not touch the boy.
