A Lincoln High School teacher has pleaded guilty to sexually abusing a student. 44 year old Doug Benz will serve a six year prison sentence. Prosecutors dismissed six other charges as part of the plea deal. First Assistant Logan County State's Attorney Jon Wright says given the nature of the charges and the victim's desire to avoid a trial this is an appropriate resolution. Benz had taught English in Lincoln for 22 years. He also coached J-V football, track and field and wrestling.
