Mitchell Baseball Coach Luke Norden Found Not Guilty in Failure to Report Case

Mitchell Baseball coach Luke Norden was acquitted of four charges related to failure to report abuse or neglect of a child and misprision to a felony, stemming from an alleged rape case involving Legion baseball players.

The trial, held at the Davison County Courthouse, also involved former Mitchell Baseball Association president Jeremy Borgan, whose charges were dismissed.

Judge Donna Bucher emphasized that Norden and Borgan’s cases were different from the ongoing investigation into the alleged rape involving the Mitchell baseball players.

Norden declined to comment after the case.
