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.
