A Glenwood High School graduate and former audio-visual technician at the school, has agreed to plea guilty to a charge of 3rd degree sexual abuse, in connection with an incident involving a female student who was 15-years old at the time the incident took place. According to the Omaha World-Herald, 20-year-old Andrew Schoening, of Glenwood, agreed to plead guilty to having sex with the student inside a high school closet on December 20th, 2011, in return for the prosecution not seeking prison time. His attorney had argued the sex was consensual.

The Mills County Attorney says he’ll ask the judge during sentencing on November 5th, to place Schoening on supervised probation, with the stipulation that the conviction remain on Schoening’s record. If he had been convicted of statutory rape, Schoening could have faced up to 10-years in prison. Schoening, who was hired by the Glenwood School District in September 2011, resigned from his position last January, once the allegations became public.
