OMAHA, Neb. (WOWT) - A former Omaha Public Schools security guard has pleaded no contest to first-degree sexual assault of a child.

The case was originally set to go to trial on March 1, 2023, before the plea agreement was announced.

Ornelas-Ramirez was arrested in late 2021 after students reported that a security guard may have had sexual contact with a student on school property. A police report said the incident happened after school hours in a portable classroom. Bond was set at $2.5 million after the arrest.

Sentencing has been scheduled for May 16, 2023. Ornelas-Ramirez faces 1-50 years in prison for the felony.
