Albia Teacher Faces Charges Again After Sexual Exploitation

A southern Iowa teacher accused of having sex with a student faces new charges after his previous arrest in June.

Court records show 29-year-old Zachary Simpson entered a not-guilty plea to sexual exploitation by a school employee in July.

Court records show a 16-year-old girl reported that she and Simpson had sex at least twice. Simpson had a no-contact order with the victim, but was recently seen with the victim.

Police said Simpson was at a city park with the alleged victim on Wednesday. Court documents show officers saw the victim exit the pickup and get into her car. Officers spoke with both of the individuals at the time.

Simpson was arrested and charged with violation of no-contact order. He plead guilty Friday and is now being held in the Monroe County Jail in lieu of a $2,000 bond.

Simpson will now be placed on the sex offender registry list.
