A Wahoo police officer was arrested in Dodge County after turning himself in on charges of sexual assault of a child Friday.

On Monday, the Nebraska State Patrol and Nebraska Attorney General’s Office filed a criminal complaint against Officer Sean M. Vilmont, according to a press release from the Wahoo Police Department.

According to a complaint filed Wednesday, Vilmont, 51, of Fremont is facing two counts of third-degree sexual assault of a child and one count of unlawful intrusion.

The reported dates for all three counts were between Jan. 1, 2020, and Jan. 31, 2021. The counts indicated that the victim was a minor during the accused crimes.

The first two counts charge Vilmont of having sexual contact with the victim, while the third charges him of photographing, filming or recording the victim’s intimate area without their knowledge and consent.

The first two counts are Class 3A felonies, which has a maximum sentence of three years imprisonment in the state of Nebraska. The third is a Class 4 felony, which has a maximum sentence of two years imprisonment.

According to the WPD release, the department was notified when NSP’s investigation of Vilmont began. He was placed on administrative leave pending the outcome of internal and criminal investigations and had been relieved of his duties pending his right of appeal.

Vilmont’s first arraignment hearing is scheduled for Oct. 7.

A married teacher is behind bars after she was convicted of having sex with a 15-year-old schoolboy. Kandice Barber, 35, was warned she faces a jail sentence after she was found guilty on Thursday of causing or inciting a child to engage in sexual activity following a retrial. She was remanded in custody following a bail hearing at Aylesbury Crown Court on Friday ahead of sentencing on February 15. Barber, of Wendover, Buckinghamshire, was found not guilty of two further counts of causing or inciting a child to engage in sexual activity.

R. Kelly's child pornography trial will now take place in September 2021, after the Covid-19 pandemic led to a further delay.
