Accused School Plotter's Dad Tenders Settlement Offer

RIVERTON, Kan. (AP) _ The father of a southeast Kansas teenager tells the Riverton Board of Education that he won't sue the district if it gives him $750,000.

Wesley Jaeger on Thursday night distributed a letter saying that his son's rights were violated when school officials allowed police to take the boy out of class for questioning. He also said his son's locker was searched and the contents were given to police without a warrant.

Jaeger's son, Andrew Jaeger, who was one of five Riverton students charged in an alleged school-shooting plot in April 2006.

Board members declined to accept Jaeger's letter and refused his request that they sign a document acknowledging they had received it.

The elder Jaeger on Monday went to the Cherokee County Commission seeking $250,000 to avoid a lawsuit.
