GARDEN PLAIN, Kan. (AP) A south-central Kansas teacher and coach charged in a sex-related case involving minors will have a preliminary hearing on February.
The preliminary hearing for 39-year-old Garden Plain teacher Todd Puetz was scheduled for Thursday. The Wichita Eagle reports (http://bit.ly/xP0Kow) court records show the hearing was delayed until Feb. 9.
Prosecutors say Puetz, who taught physical education, tried to entice a child he believed to be 15 into sex acts.
He was one of seven men arrested in late October who police say used electronic media to try to meet underage girls for sex.
His attorney, Dan Monnat, has said that Puetz is eager to go to court to prove his innocence.
