Ex-Kearney Teacher Pleads Not Guilty to Sexual Misconduct

(AP) – A former Kearney High School math teacher has pleaded not guilty to sexual misconduct charges.

30-year-old Bryant Hummel was in court Monday after being charged last month with exposing himself to two 17-year-old female students he was supposed to be helping with homework assignments after school.

According to a probable cause statement, Hummel also threatened to ruin the girls’ sports careers and fail them in class if they reported the incident.

The girls told investigators Hummel later asked them to come to his home. School officials alerted police to the complaints in April.
