Police in California say they are closing an investigation into accounts by students that two second-graders engaged in sexual conduct in a classroom.

Investigators believe students were telling the truth, but they found no evidence that any adults orchestrated or participated in the acts.

Oakland police spokeswoman Holly Joshi told the Oakland Tribune on Thursday that no criminal charges will be filed.

Joshi that students gave similar and what she described as accurate accounts of what occurred last month at Markham Elementary School in Oakland.

A second-grade teacher has been on paid administrative leave since the incidents were reported on Jan. 20. The teacher has denied knowing about any such behavior.
