COEUR D’ALENE, Idaho (AP) - A late summer trial is scheduled for a former Lake City High School science teacher who faces lewd conduct charges

The Coeur d’Alene, Idaho, Press reports (https://bit.ly/2rB0WRh ) that a two-week jury trial is scheduled to begin Aug. 26 for Jeffrey Kantola.

Kantola is charged with lewd conduct with a minor under the age of 16. The felony charges can carry up to 15 years in prison.

Kantola chose not to enter a plea at his Friday arraignment in First District Court, so Judge Rich Christensen entered a not guilty plea on his behalf.

According to court records, Kantola is accused of sexual misconduct with a 15-year-old girl on two occasions.

Kantola, who is not in custody, was assigned a public defender last week. His next court appearance is an Aug. 11 pretrial conference.
