A 19-year old former, part-time audio-visual support technician for the Glenwood Community High School, has been charged with 3rd degree sexual abuse, a Class-C Felony. Court records indicate Andrew Schoening, of Glenwood, was given the charge last week, and plead not guilty last Friday, Feb. 10th.  He also waived a speedy trial. The charge was filed on January 17th, after a 15-year-old girl told school officials and police that Schoening forced her to have sex in a closet at the high school.  The incident allegedly took place December 20, 2011.

When confronted with the allegations, Schoening admitted that he did have sex with the minor and that he knew she was underage.  Schoening was released from custody January 19th, on a $10,000 bond. He’s been ordered to have no contact with the alleged victim of the abuse. A trial date has not yet been set.
