A former assistant principal at Millard South High School was sentenced 18-24 years in prison on Thursday in connection with a sexual assault case.
MatthewFedde was arrested in December, 2017 on two felony charges, felony child abuse/neglect and felony sexual assault of a minor. District officials said the arrest was part of an ongoing investigation of inappropriate contact with a 15 year old student.
Millard South administrators said they were approached with a concern about a student. Officials immediately contacted police over the allegations. Police said the victim’s mother found a journal with details of an alleged sexual relationship between her daughter and Fedde.
Through a search of the victim’s phone, officers found messages between Fedde and the victim. Surveillance video from the school showed Fedde walking to the school counseling office with the victim, which was consistent with a journal entry detailing the alleged assault.
Fedde had pleaded no contest in September to two amended counts of attempted sexual assault on a child. The judge sentenced him on both counts on Thursday.
