Pre-Trial in Teacher Sex Case Scheduled for Thursday

Livermore teacher accused of having sex with a former student due in court Thursday.

A pre-trial for former Granada High teacher Marie Johnson accused of having sex with a former student is scheduled for 9 a.m. Thursday in Pleasanton.

Previous pre-trial hearings have been delayed in the case.

Johnson, 41, faces charges of unlawful sexual intercourse with a person under 18, oral copulation and committing a lewd act on a child, according to court records.

She was arrested on Jan. 11 on 24 counts of sexual assault on a 14-year-old boy, police said.

Johnson, who pleaded not guilty to the charges on Feb. 23, is being held at Santa Rita Jail in Dublin in lieu of a $950,000 bail.

Thursday's pre-trial will be held in Department 703 of the Gale-Schenone Hall of Justice in Pleasanton.

You don't know she did it. It is wrong of you to make statements stating her guilt because at the moment she is innocent until proven guilty. You don't have any of the facts or information. All that has happened is that the woman has been accused. Nobody knows the situation. The kid could be making it up for all we know. So you had better get the facts before you start posting nonsense like this.

There was a hearing on January 31. 15 of the 24 counts against her were dropped, she pleaded guilty to the other nine. She is scheduled to be arraigned on February 14--yes, Valentine's Day.

Joe Granada, you are WRONG: "She then pleaded NOT guilty to the nine allegations within the modified complaint". That is b ecause she is innocent and is waiting out the DA for them to continue to drop the charges as they see they have no case that will convict her.

My apologies for the typo, of course Maurice is right.
