Emily Lofing, a former Nebraska City schoolteacher, was charged with debauching a minor after she was accused of meeting a 16-year-old boy for sex in July. According to a statement issued by the school district, Lofing, 27, was employed by the Nebraska City Public Schools for some of the 2016-2017 school year. Furthermore, according to court documents, Lofing had met with the unidentified 16-year-old boy in July of 106, only two years after she got married for the purpose of ‘penetration’.
According to County Attorney David Partsch, due to the fact that the 16-year-old boy was able to legally consent to sex at the time of the alleged incident, debauchery of a minor is the most serious offense that could be filed against Lofing.
‘The allegation is that she arranged for a meeting for the purpose of sexual intercourse with the individual who is younger than 17 years old.It’s important for the public to know what the law is and it’s also important for our legislators to know those gaps that are present in our school systems and in my opinion need to be fixed,’ Partsch said.
“The district recently discovered information related to Ms. Lofing’s conduct prior to her employment with the school district,” the statement said. Upon learning of the allegations against her, district officials placed Lofing on administrative leave. Lofing resigned, and the district’s board accepted the resignation Monday, the statement said
Debauchery of a minor, a misdemeanor, carries a maximum penalty of one year in jail and a $1,000 fine.
Lofing, who was employed in Weeping Water, Nebraska, before moving to the Nebraska City district, was placed on administrative leave after the district learned of the alleged meeting, but she has since quit her job. She is scheduled to appear in court on March 13.
