The lawyer for a former teacher with the Anita School District has entered a formal written plea of Not Guilty to charges his client sexually exploited a minor female over a period of 13-months. Attorney F. Montgomery Brown entered the plea for 65-year old William Glenn Foulkes, of Anita, on Friday, April 27th. Foulkes was previously scheduled to appear in Cass County District Court for his arraignment hearing this (Monday) morning.

Foulkes, a former long-time Math teacher at the Anita High School, and Anita Elementary School, was arrested March 15th on a felony warrant for Sexual Exploitation by a School Employee, and 49-Aggravated Misdemeanor counts of Sexual Exploitation by a School Employee. If convicted on all of the charges, Foulkes could face a maximum time of 103 years in prison and fines of more than $300,000. Foulkes resigned from his teaching position in November 2010. He’s accused of engaging in sexual conduct on numerous occasions with a minor female while teaching the student in a math program from August 2009 until November 11, 2010.

Foulkes’ trial is set to take place July 10th. He remains free on $50,000 bond, and was ordered not to have contact with his alleged victim.
