Southwest Teacher Arrested

A music teacher at Southwest High School here in Lincoln, is on paid leave after being arrested. He was taken in for failing to register as a sex offender in Iowa. The Nebraska State Patrol arrested 23-year-old Stephen Mohring. He was later released from the Lancaster County Jail after posting a five-thousand-dollar bond. The Lincoln Public Schools Associate Superintendent says the arrest has nothing to do with any children in Nebraska. Mohring's conviction did not show up in a background check because the crime was committed when he was a juvenile.
