Stonehill College officials say they look forward to helping Kevin Treseler return to his studies. He had been suspended.
After weeks of deliberation, a grand jury has not indicted a Stonehill College student accused of raping an 8-year-old girl he tutored in Brockton, and he will not be prosecuted, authorities said yesterday.
As a result, Kevin Treseler, 21, of Millis will be welcomed back to Stonehill, from which he was suspended last month following the allegations.
Treseler is not sure he will return to the Easton school, his lawyer said.
"Kevin Treseler's name has been cleared,'' said his attorney, Michael P. Doolin of Dorchester. "I hope that he's able to go back to the life that he had, and his family is very relieved and gratified for the findings of the grand jury.''
Matthew H. Malone, superintendent of Brockton's public schools, said officials believe a crime was committed and the school district will continue to work with law enforcement to identify a perpetrator. He did not indicate whether another participant in the tutoring program would be targeted.
