Former Ballard school employee arrested for sexually abusing student in classroom

A Story County man and former employee of the Ballard Community School District faces multiple criminal charges after police say he had sex with a 14-year-old inside a classroom.

According to a criminal complaint, 23-year-old Jacob Dawson Alden of rural Story County is accused of using his authority to coerce the child into submitting to intercourse, which allegedly occurred inside the Information Technology room at Ballard High School in Huxley.

The complaint states that the incident took place on October 31 at approximately 3:10 p.m.

Alden, who is no longer an employee of the school district, was taken into custody following an investigation by the Huxley Police Department. He faces the following charges:

  • Third-Degree Sexual Abuse – Child Victim Coerced by Person in Authority (first offense), a class “C” felony
  • Sexual Exploitation by a School Employee, an aggravated misdemeanor

Online records indicate that Alden posted bond following his arrest and later waived a preliminary hearing.

When contacted regarding the case, a Huxley PD spokesman told StoryCounty.News: “I’m not going to give a comment.”

This is a developing story. StoryCounty.News will provide more information as it becomes available.
