Teacher’s Molestation Trail Set For January

by The Editors on October 29, 2009

A trial date of January 12, 2010 has been set for Raymond Lewis Firth, 38, in charges related to the alleged molestation of three third-grade students at the Pacific Rim Elementary School during the 2006-07 and 2007-08 school years, according to a story in the San Diego Union-Tribune.

Firth faced charges Tuesday in Vista Superior Court in connection with allegations by one of the three students. He pleaded not guilty, posted $450,000 bail and is free pending trial in January, Mok said. . . After a third student came forward during the summer with allegations of molestation, the District Attorney’s Office filed additional charges in August, Mok said. In the second case, he is charged with two counts of committing lewd conduct upon a minor under 14. . . . If found guilty on all counts, Firth faces up to 18 years in state prison, Mok said.
