KENNEWICK, WA - A former Kingspoint Christian school teacher charged with 2nd degree child molestation appeared in Benton County court for the first time Thursday morning.

According to court documents, 30-year-old Brian Scott Dean placed a blanket over himself and a 13-year-old girl and then touched her inappropriately.  The charge also carries an aggravating circumstance because he was in a position of trust to his alleged victim.

Benton County Deputy Prosecutor Anita Petra says the state still needs to conduct interviews and gather more information before going to trial May 12th.
