Ex-teacher takes plea deal for having sex with student
CRESCO, Iowa (AP) — A former teacher in northeast Iowa accused of having sex with a student has made a deal with prosecutors.
Tiffany Ranweiler-Oblander, 31, filed a written plea of guilty Tuesday in Howard County District Court to a misdemeanor count of sexual exploitation by a school employee. Prosecutors lowered the charge from a felony in return for her plea.
The plea agreement calls for probation and a suspended prison sentence of two years.
The Howard County Sheriff’s Office said investigators have determined that Ranweiler-Oblander had sexual contact with the 18-year-old student during March and April 2018 at his home in Lime Springs.
She worked for the Howard-Winneshiek district.
