PLAQUEMINE, La. (AP) - A judge has set a tentative trial date for a former teacher in Plaquemine accused of having sex with students.

WAFB-TV reports (https://bit.ly/1Qyoqvt ) state District Judge Alvin Batiste set the trial for 30-year-old Keavin Keith, of Plaquemine, for Feb. 16, 2016.

Keith is accused of having sexual relationships with students at MSA West Academy. Authorities say he fathered the child of one of the teenagers associated with the investigation. The alleged victims are 15 and 16-years-old.
