Pre-Trial Set in Marie Johnson Case

Livermore teacher accused of having sex with a former student due in court Thursday.

A pre-trial for a Granada High teacher accused of having sex with a former student is scheduled for 2 p.m. Thursday.

Marie Johnson, 41, faces charges of unlawful sexual intercourse with a person under 18, oral copulation and committing a lewd act on a child, according to court records.

She was arrested on Jan. 11 on 24 counts of sexual assault on a 14-year-old boy, police said.

Johnson, who pleaded not guilty to the charges on Feb. 23, is being held at Santa Rita Jail in Dublin in lieu of a $950,000 bail.

Thursday's pre-trial will be held in Department 703 of the Gale-Schenone Hall of Justice in Pleasanton. If needed, the hearing would continue Friday morning at 9 a.m.

Given that this is Livermore, and that this case has received attention all over the Bay Area to the point that even the folks at SFGate have published it and both local TV and Radio have also broadcasted the details of this case far and wide, the problem here may be whether or not the pre-trial publicity may have already tainted the jury pool. Regardless of whether or not the statements are suspect, if I were that defendant's attorney, I would be seeking a change of venue out of the Bay Area. Since the crime may have allegedly happened in Livermore, this case may be moved to someplace like Butte County Superior Court in Chico, which has a population the same size as Livermore and would probably best suit this case if it needed to be moved out of the Bay Area.

Apparently I am? And who is a stupid enough idiot to ask such a dumbass question? Apparently YOU are danny graha. That was a straight up stupid question, like damn really?? What are you mad cause that ugly old hag is your mom? Or better yet is she your wife and you're mad at the world cause you couldn't even get a stanky old wrinkled up skank like her to stay faithful to you? Sounds like your sense of humor dried up right along with your wifeys old cooter?

@Hood And Robe: Yes, you are immature enough to leave comments like the ones you have made, here, and given the time you are leaving them, you must be drunk when you post them. At that hour, you are probably better off going to bed, most likely alone, trying to go to sleep and learn to be alert the next time you post so you won't come off sounding stupid and immature. As for the animosity you seem to be showing here, first towards the teacher accused of having sex with an underage minor and then this poster, I can't help but wonder if you have some sort of frustration out there you are trying to vent, but that may be fodder for your psychotherapist if you have one (you come off sounding like you need one, though), not the rest of us here in this forum.
