PAPILLION, Neb. (AP) — A former Papillion-La Vista High School football coach and social studies teacher has been arrested on suspicion of third-degree sexual abuse by a school employee. An arrest warrant was issued for 29-year-old Stephen Gentry on Wednesday, and he appeared in Sarpy County Court on Thursday. His bond was set at $1,000, and he was ordered to have no contact with any minors outside of his own children. Court records say investigators believe Gentry had inappropriate contact with a student in January. He resigned in February after the investigation began. If convicted, Gentry faces up to two years in prison. His next court date is set for April 13.
