Posted: Updated:

SEATTLE, Wash.- A former Kennewick teacher accused of child molestation is scheduled to make an appearance in King County Superior court Thursday.

Prosecutors say a trial date will be set unless Bill Pickerel pleads guilty.

Pickerel has been in jail in King County for nearly a month on multiple counts of sexual misconduct with a minor.

He faces similar charges in Benton County.

He's being held on $200,000 bond.
