Middle school English teacher, Emily Lofing, arranged to meet a 16-year-old male student for “the purpose of sexual penetration,” according to court documents. She has been charged with debauching a minor. Lofing, 27, resigned from her job at Nebraska City Middle School just hours after the charge was made.
The Daily Caller reports:
It’s not clear if the sexual penetration scheduled back in July actually occurred, or if it had merely been scheduled.
In any event, Nebraska law allows anyone who is 16 years old to consent to sex. Thus, as Otoe County prosecutor attorney David Partsch has explained, Lofing can only be subject to the charge of debauching a minor.
The student reportedly attends school at Lofing’s previous workplace in Weeping Water, Nebraska. Although she left that school on amicable terms according to the school district superintendent, a Nebrasa school district statement raised suspicions of her prior behavior: “The district recently discovered information related to Ms. Lofing’s conduct prior to her employment with the school district.”
A second allegation from a family in Weeping Water has come to light since the charge.
With the charge of debauching a minor, Lofing could be subject to a maximum of one year in jail and a $1000 fine.
