DENVER (AP) - Prosecutors will not file charges against security screeners accused of inappropriately fondling and groping passengers at Denver International Airport.

Lynn Kimbrough, a spokeswoman for the Denver District Attorney’s Office, tells The Denver Post (https://goo.gl/me1t2h ) her office was unable to corroborate the claims, and that some of the allegations were outside of the statute of limitations.

The Transportation Security Administration fired two security screeners - a man and a woman - in April who were suspected of conspiring to fondle male passengers at a security checkpoint. When news of their firings broke, other passengers, both men and women, came forward to say they too had been inappropriately touched at the checkpoint.

Prosecutors declined to bring charges against the two former screeners because no victims were identified at the time.
