Omaha elementary teacher accused of student sexual assaults

December 5, 2018

OMAHA, Neb. (AP) — A 30-year-old Omaha elementary schoolteacher charged with two counts of sexually assaulting one of his students has given police a list of several other girls he molested.

The Omaha World-Herald reports that 30-year-old Gregory Sedlacek was ordered held without bond at a hearing Wednesday. Court records don’t list the name of an attorney who could comment for Sedlacek.

Police say other teachers reported seeing Sedlacek fondle a 7-year-old girl on the Fontanelle Elementary School playground and reported it. Detectives say Sedlacek later acknowledged what he’d done to the girl several times and said he’d done similar things to other students. Prosecutors say he also told police he was sexually attracted to young girls.

The school district placed him on leave last month. He’d taught at the school for three years.
