Omaha teacher gets jail time for public indecency

OMAHA, Neb. (AP) — An Omaha high school teacher has been sentenced to about six months in jail for flashing a woman outside a store.

The Omaha World Herald reports 37-year-old Michael McIntosh was convicted Tuesday of public indecency and disturbing the peace. He was given 180 days in jail and fined a $200 fine.

A woman outside a Wal-Mart in February told police a man approached her in a car and asked for directions. The man, later identified as McIntosh, is accused of exposing his genitals and masturbating.

McIntosh's attorneys said he was on medication at the time. They attempted to use an insanity plea, but a judge overruled that defense.

McIntosh, an English teacher at Bryan High School, is on administrative leave as the school district investigates the allegations.
