WINTERSET, Iowa (AP) – A former Winterset teacher has been given two years of probation for kissing and groping a high school student.  Drew Lipovac was sentenced on Monday. He’d been convicted of sexual exploitation by a school employee.  Authorities say an investigation began last year after they received a report of inappropriate physical contact between Lipovac and at least one girl who Lipovac knew was a district high school student.  The 27-year-old Lipovac also was fined $625 and ordered to complete 50 hours of community service.
