A North Platte man has been charged with 1st Degree Sexual Assault after he allegedly had sexual intercourse and impregnated a 15-year-old girl.

On August 7th, a sexual assault investigation by the North Platte Police Department was initiated after the Lincoln County Attorney’s Office contacted Police regarding a minor having sexual intercourse with an adult.

Authorities say the minor, now 17, requested assistance at the Lincoln County Child Support Office for financial support for her one-year-old child.

An earlier paternity test indicated that the suspect, Jamie Johnston, now 24, is the biological father of the child.

Nebraska State law requires minors to be 16-years-old to legally have consensual sex with a person over the age of 19.

In this case, the girl was 15 and Johnston was 22 at the time the act took place.

On September 4th, an Investigator met with Johnston and arrested him on the charge.  He was transported and jailed at the Lincoln County Detention Center.

1st Degree Sexual Assault is a Class II felony.

    Some people just don’t learn. You would think that after all the stories of the same stuff in this town, and the outcome of each one, they would steer clear of this behavior. Stuck on stupid.

    FYI Jamie chooses his own choices he didn’t need alcohol to “get laid” and for your remark about Duane Spiehs he has nothing to do with this so keep you mouth shut about him. Unless you knew the situation u have no room to say anything about Duane. JJ made his own decisions not anyone was forced. He is an adult and therefore chose his decision to have unprotected sex with a minor.

    I just don’t understand. First of all, what kind of a “man” sleeps with a 15 year old CHILD? Secondly, how big of loser do you have to be to knock up a 15 year old child and NOT take responsibility and pay for the child you had with the 15 year old kid!

    Why doesn’t this surprise me? He is a high school drop out. He only had a semester of school left but decided that since he was 18 he could drop out. He thought he was sooo cool for doing that. The jokes on him! Now he doesn’t have a decent job to support his child that he had with a child. Some people just don’t get it. He is a vile and disgusting guy.

        First of all, WE are the “gross pos” that are “vile to society” and “sickening” for making note that this guy is a disgusting pervert that prayed on little girls AND knocked one up and refused to pay for that kid??? Wow, I think you have some serious misconceptions on reality, geeze. Second of all, you have to have your parents’ consent to drop out at 16, not that it really matters, and isn’t why this guy was arrested.
