 In order to prevent one of its reporters from being charged with trespassing, a local TV station signed a deal with school officials in Fargo and Moorhead agreeing to not assign school stories to that reporter for 90 days.

Police in Fargo, Moorhead and West Fargo investigated Mellaney Moore for possible trespassing charges after her Dec. 11 story for Valley News Live in which she entered elementary schools in all three cities without signing in at the front desks – an attempt to point out shortcomings in the schools’ security.
