A former Kingspoint Christian School teacher accused of sexually molesting a minor waives his right to a speedy trial in a Benton County courtroom this morning.

Brian Scott Dean's trial for second-degree child molestation will begin July 28th.

Court documents show in January, a 13-year-old girl was in Dean's care when he allegedly touched her innappropriately, the girl told her parents the next day.

Dean posted bail in the amount of $10,000.

Calls to Kingspoint Christian School were not returned.

Dean will be back in court for his pre-trial July 17th.
