Stephanie Draper pleads not guilty in sex assault case

A former middle school teacher accused of having a sexual relationship with a student six years ago pleaded not guilty Friday morning in Sarpy County District Court.

Stephanie A. Draper, 35, of Blair, Neb., faces up to 50 years in prison if convicted of first-degree sexual assault of a child.

Sarpy County authorities issued a warrant for Draper's arrest July 18. According to an affidavit requesting the warrant, the student, now 21, told an investigator that he and Draper had a relationship between February and April 2002, when he was 14.

He said they met when the student attended Beadle Middle School.

The big finish here.

Six years ago! Damn, I bet she thought she'd gotten away with it.
