Omaha middle school administrator charged in child sex case

OMAHA, Neb. (AP) -- An Omaha middle school administrator has been charged with first-degree sexual assault of a 12-year-old girl.

The Omaha World-Herald reports that 47-year-old Todd Compton, a seventh-grade administrator at Davis Middle School, has also been charged with third-degree sexual assault of a child. He faces at least 23 years in prison if convicted of both counts.

A judge ordered Compton held Thursday with bond and to have no contact with children.

Compton has been placed on administrative leave by Omaha Public Schools.

Compton's attorney, Joseph Howard, said in court Thursday that the allegations against Compton are false and called the alleged victim "disgruntled."
