A former Layton elementary school teacher pleaded not guilty Tuesday in 2nd District Court to sexually molesting one of his students. Two other sex-related charges were dismissed this week by Judge Jon Memmott, who ruled there is insufficient evidence to take them to trial.
Gary Gregor, 39, formerly of Clearfield, faces trial Oct. 18 on a first-degree felony charge of aggravated sexual abuse of a child. A second aggravated sex-abuse charge and misdemeanor lewdness charge were dismissed.The fifth-grade teacher was suspended by the Davis School District after Layton police began their investigation last fall, and he moved to Montana.
A pre-trial hearing was set for Sept. 26 even though defense attorney Wally Bugden told the judge there will be a trial and that Gregor is not interested in a plea bargain.
