A Beatrice man was arrested for sexual assault following an alleged relationship with a 12-year-old girl.

Schad Myers, 20, was arrested Tuesday afternoon on four counts of first-degree sexual assault.

According to arrest documents, a Beatrice Middle School student reported to a counselor that her 12-year-old friend was in a relationship with a 20-year-old man.

Authorities were contacted and the school resource officer spoke with the victim, who said she was involved in a sexual relationship with Myers.

Documents state that Myers was contacted and eventually admitted to having a sexual relationship with the girl that he said was consensual.

He acknowledged having intercourse with the girl at least four times since November 2018 in his residence.

Myers' bond was set at $250,000 with a 10 percent deposit. His next hearing is set for March 15.
