PLEA DEAL: Teacher Sexual Abuse Case
Court records show a former Urbandale Middle School teacher accused of sexually abuse will accept a plea agreement next month.
A hearing has been set for 23-three-year-old Benjamin Hoffman on May 9th.
He was slated to go to trial next Monday on 11-counts of third-degree sex abuse, two counts of supplying alcohol to a minor, and one count of sexual exploitation by a school employee.
Investigators say Hoffman sexually abused a 13 and 14-year-old girl at his West Des Moines apartment. He was a student teacher at Norwalk Middle School at the time of the abuse.
