FARMINGTON -- A four-day jury trial has been set for a former charter school basketball coach accused of having a sexual relationship with a student.
The trial has been set for Stephen Paul Niedzwiecki, of Kaysville, to run Feb. 4 through Feb. 7 in 2nd District Court before Judge Michael Allphin.
A pretrial conference hearing is set for Oct. 28.
Niedzwiecki, 34, appeared in court Aug. 20. He is charged with eight counts of forcible sodomy, one count of attempted rape, all first-degree felonies; and two counts of forcible sexual abuse, second-degree felonies. He entered not guilty pleas to the charges in June.
A 17-year-old girl had reported that Niedzwiecki began their relationship when she was 15 years old at the end of her ninth-grade year.
Niedzwiecki had been a basketball coach and taught at Jefferson Academy in Kaysville, where the girl attended school and played on the basketball team. He also tutored her in summer 2011, police said.
At the time of his arrest, Niedzwiecki was teaching at Quest Academy and was also an adjunct anthropology professor at Weber State University. He is no longer teaching at either facility, officials said.
