In October of 2015, the Sibley-Ocheyedan superintendent found Kyle Ewinger sleeping in his classroom next to a 10-year-old boy. At the time, the boy denied anything sexual happened, but according to a criminal complaint, the boy later stated Ewinger had performed a sex act on him.

In court Monday, a judge sentenced Ewinger 10 years in prison.
