A judge in the case of a former Anita Community School District teacher charged with sexual exploitation of a minor, has set a plea and sentencing date for September 4th, at 9-a.m.  Fourth District Court Judge Kathleen Kilnoski made the decision on Monday, during a Pre-Trial conference.  The trial for 65-year old William Glenn Foulkes had been scheduled to take place on July 10th, but on June 11th, Judge Jeffrey Larson agreed to extend the date until September 25th, at 9:30-a.m. in the Cass County Courthouse. Cass County Attorney Dan Feistner said the extension allowed attorney’s for both parties to continue any necessary review, preparation and discussions associated with the case.

Foulkes pled Not Guilty in March, to charges he sexually exploited a minor female over a period of 13-months. A former long-time Math teacher at the Anita High School, and Anita Elementary School, Foulkes 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, he faces 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.
