(Omaha, NE) -- An Omaha Public School employee is facing child sexual assault charges.

Investigators say 34 year old Steven Lambert, a staff member at Omaha North High School, is charged with four counts of first-degree sexual assault of a child. In a letter to staff, students and their families, North's Principal said that the investigation into Lambert doesn't involve a student. The charges reportedly stem from sexual contact Lambert had with someone he knew and had reportedly take place over the course of a few years.

Lambert is being held without bond. He's scheduled to appear in court again in early January.
