OPS Fontenelle principal arrested on child abuse charges


    The principal of Fontenelle Elementary school, 48-year-old Eric Nelson has been arrested on child abuse/neglect charges.

    Omaha police say it is in connection to the sexual assault accusations facing Gregory Sedlacek.

    Sedlacek was a first grade teacher at Fontenelle. He's charged with seven counts of sexual abuse of a child.


    Prosecutors say he was arrested after two teachers saw him with his hands up a girl's skirt on the Fontenelle Elementary playground.

    Court records say he admitted assaulting several children during his time as a first grade teacher.

    Nelson was placed on leave December 11.
