Former teacher, Gregory Sedlacek, sentenced for sexually assaulting children

OMAHA – A former Fontenelle Elementary School first-grade teacher will spend most of the rest of his life in prison after sexually assaulting six students.

Tuesday morning, Douglas County District Judge James Gleason sentenced 31-year-old Gregory Sedlacek to 50 to 100 years in prison on several charges of first and third-degree sexual assault of a child.

Sedlacek must serve 40 years before he is eligible for parole.

Six students told authorities that Sedlacek had sexually assaulted them — sometimes in his classroom and on the playground.

Fontenelle Principal Eric Nelson is awaiting trial on allegations that he failed to report Sedlacek’s behavior to police or Child Protective Services.
