Millard South Assistant Principal arrested for sexual assault, child abuse

MILLARD, Neb. (WOWT) Millard South High School Assistant Principal Matt Fedde was arrested Thursday on two felony charges.

Fedde was arrested and booked Thursday for Felony Child Abuse/Neglect and Felony Sexual Assault of a Minor. District officials said the arrest was part of an ongoing investigation of inappropriate contact with a student.

Millard South administrators said they were approached Wednesday with a concern about a student. Officials immediately contacted police over the allegations. Police said the victim’s mother found a journal with details of an alleged sexual relationship between her daughter and Fedde.

Through a search of the victim’s phone, officers found messages between Fedde and the victim. Surveillance video from the school showed Fedde walking to the school counseling office with the victim – which was consistent with a journal entry detailing the alleged assault.

The district alerted parents of the arrest Thursday. In part, the statement read, "It is with difficulty that I share that one of our administrators, assistant principal Matt Fedde, has been arrested in an ongoing investigation of inappropriate contact with a student. He is on administrative leave as the police continue their work."

Fedde has been with the district since 2012.
