OMAHA (KPTM)- A Treynor, Iowa teen will spend two weeks in jail for forcing himself on four girls from his school.
18-year-old Kreighton Elwood pleaded guilty to sexual assault charges in court Thursday. The teen was once friends the girls. He's also the son of his school's superintendent.
Elwood walked into a packed courtroom to face the girls. They started coming forward over the summer. At least two of them said Elwood assaulted them last year. They said he forced himself on them and took off their clothes even though they told him not to.
The teen originally faced kidnapping charges for locking two of the girls in his truck. But he managed to strike a deal. The charges were lowered to groping.
Elwood got slapped with just two years of probation and will spend just 14 days behind bars for sexual assault. He will have to register as a sex offender for 10 years.
One of the four girls read a letter to Elwood in court. She said she blamed herself at first until more girls came forward. Prosecutors say the girls did not want Elwood to go to prison. Elwood did apologize for his actions.
Elwood is no longer at Treynor High School. He will start his jail sentence on September 22nd.
