A 17-year-old Treynor High School student has been charged with third-degree sex abuse and kidnapping in connection with two incidents last November.

Kreighton Elwood is accused in court documents of removing one victim's clothes and fondling her and refusing to allow her to leave his pickup truck. In a second case he allegedly tried to tear off another girl's underwear.  His father is the superintendent of Treynor, Iowa schools.

Treynor school officials say Elwood is a senior at the school and he has been placed in an alternative education program.

Online court records indicate the teen has a court appearance set for September 3rd and a trial date set for October 29th.  Elwood could be sentenced to life in prison if convicted on the kidnapping charge,
