Lexington Teacher Fired

The Nebraska teacher accused of running-off to Mexico with a 13 year old student, has been fired.

The Lexington school board voted six to zero to terminate 25-year-old Kelsey Peterson.

She was put on administrative leave last month, after allegations surfaced that she was having a sexual relationship with the student.

Peterson faces federal charges of crossing state lines to have sex with a minor.

She's also charged in Dawson County with felony counts of kidnapping, and child abuse.

Peterson's attorney is now asking for proof that the boy is only thirteen.

He claims he has information that the boy might be older.
