YORK, Neb. (AP) - An attorney says his client will plead not guilty to a charge that she had sex with a teenager at a York facility for troubled children.

Authorities say 37-year-old Jamie Bishop, of Seward, is charged with sexual assault of a minor. Court documents say Bishop and the 15-year-old had sex several times in his room or on the grounds at Epworth Village from January to July last year. The child was born in December, and authorities say DNA tests prove the boy’s paternity.

Her attorney, Chad Wythers (WIH’-thurz), said Monday that Bishop would plead not guilty and said in a news release that “her accuser has a history of manipulating situations for his benefit.”

Epworth Village CEO Margaret Donovan says Bishop no longer works there.
