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.
