No charges filed in Hillsborough girl's drowning death at school

RIVERVIEW - The State Attorney's Office has declined to file criminal charges in the death of an 11-year-old girl with Down syndrome who drowned in a pond at her Riverview school.

The Hillsborough County Sheriff's Office launched an investigation after the girl's death. On Oct. 22, Jennifer Caballero, known as Jenny, walked away from Rodgers Middle School. Hours later, divers discovered her body in 12 feet of water and about 20 feet away from shore, sheriff's deputies said.
