Pedophilia is a specific type of paraphilia, and the charges/conviction in this case involves a child 14 or younger, reducing the chance considerably that the child was significantly post pubescent. It's possible we're talking a child literally going through puberty, but even being attracted to a 13 or 14 year old is close enough to pedophilia for practical purposes. It's definitely paraphilia.

Key word in the statute is "child". The Nebraska law makes no differentiation on the state of puberty. For all intents and purposes, it's safe to safe Jeffrey was sexually attracted to, and sexually assaulted, a child.

I'd ask to see your psychology degree credentials to quantify your idea of "very different", but I don't rely on parlor tricks like throwing authority around, as I hope you're beginning to learn.
