LINCOLN, Neb. (AP) - The chairman of the Amherst Village Board has resigned following his arrest in Lancaster County on a charge of child enticement.

The Kearney Hub reports (https://bit.ly/1MVwBNu ) that 56-year-old Steven Klingelhoefer is accused of trying to arrange a sexual encounter with a 15-year-old girl in Lincoln, where he was arrested on Nov. 20. Authorities say the person he was exchanging emails and text messages with was actually an undercover officer working for the Nebraska attorney general’s office.

Klingelhoefer could not be reached Friday at two phone numbers listed for him. Online court records don’t list the name of an attorney who could be contacted to comment on his behalf.

Amherst village clerk Janice Taubenheim says Klingelhoefer turned in his resignation on Tuesday. He’d held the post for about four years.
