PITTSBURGH (AP) – A trial has been delayed for a suspended western Pennsylvania teacher accused of intimidating a female student who accused another teacher of having sex with her.
Al Lindsay, the attorney for Plum High School teacher Drew Zoldak, opposed delaying the trial from March 14 to June 7. But an Allegheny County judge granted the continuance after prosecutors said two police officers and a student witness now in the Marines couldn’t make the earlier date.READ MORE: Threats Place All Pittsburgh Public Schools On Modified Lockdown FridayAllegheny County Employee Fired For Refusing COVID-19 Vaccine Says He's Preparing A Legal Fight
Lindsay says his client is being unfairly lumped in with three other male Plum teachers who are awaiting separate trials starting next month on charges they had inappropriate sexual relationships with female students.
Zoldak, who is 41, denies the charge that he intimidated one of those students by pointing her out in class last year.MORE NEWS: Death Of Driver Who Crashed Into Biomat USA Plasma Center In Pittsburgh Ruled A Suicide
