Former Teacher Waives Right to Hearing, Case Heads to Trial

A former North Schuylkill teacher waived her right to a hearing on Wednesday.

Melinda Trezise, of Cressona, waived her right to a hearing on Wednesday to charges where she allegedly had sex with a 13 year old student.  Two charges were also withdrawn on Wednesday.

Trezise is facing charges statutory sexual assault, institutional sexual assault and related offenses after one of Trezise's former students told police the two had sex more than a dozen times at her home.

The assaults reportedly took place between February and April.

Trezise had resigned from her position as a 6th grade teacher and  turned herself in back in July and was later released on bail.

The case will now head to trial.
