DES MOINES, Iowa (AP) - A former teacher is scheduled to go on trial in Des Moines June 26 on allegations that he had inappropriately touched and kissed students in his anatomy class.

Thirty-three-year-old Dustin Mead pleaded not guilty Thursday to charges of sexual abuse and sexual exploitation by a school employee. His attorney, Guy Cook, says Mead denies any wrongdoing.

A Johnston Community School District spokeswoman says Mead has resigned.

A court document says Mead gave one girl grades she didn’t earn, made sexual comments and groped her.
