• In 2006 the parents of two young children reported to Epiphany school officials behavior by Wehmann in their home with their two young children that concerned them. They said Wehmann gave the children what he called "root beer barrel kisses", whereby two people put their cheeks together then stick their tongues toward their cheeks. They said, too, that Wehmann patted one of the children on the hip as they sat side by side. Wehmann admitted to the behavior. The incidents were reported to law enforcement; Wehmann was not charged.
