A tentative trial date for Steven Andrews, the former Lorbeer Middle School teacher accused of committing lewd acts against a 14-year-old student, has been set for Sept. 30.

Andrews , 42, appeared in Pomona Superior Court Thursday where two hearings were set, including one for Monday and another for Sept. 26, according to Shiara Davila-Morales, a spokeswoman for the Los Angeles County District Attorney's Office.  The Sept. 26 hearing is to determine if the defendant is ready for jury trial, which also was tentatively set for Sept. 30. 

Trial dates are subject to change if attorneys determine they need more time at the readiness hearing, court officials have said. 

Andrews surrendered to Walnut/Diamond Bar Sheriff’s Station deputies on Sept. 30, 2011. He faces 17 charges, including six counts of sexual penetration with a foreign object, six counts of unlawful sexual intercourse with a child, two counts of oral copulation with a child under 16, and three counts of lewd acts on a child. He pleaded not guilty in November 2011.

Andrews remains in custody on $450,000 bail at the Men's Central Jail in Los Angeles.

hope he has been pumping iron and building some serious muscle. It MIGHT help him survive in the gray bar hotel. Sure hope they send him to a nice location like Pelican Bay, I understand they just LOVE child molesters there....
