A FORMER teacher at a Runcorn secondary school will answer charges that he indecently assaulted boys aged under 16 at Chester Crown Court.
David Reaper appeared before Northwich Magistrates on Thursday to be told his case was being sent to the High Court.
The 56-year-old, dressed in a grey jumper, open neck shirt and trousers, didn't speak during the short hearing and rushed into a waiting car after his case had been heard.
Mr Reaper was a technology teacher at the Grange Comprehensive, but resigned his post last month.
A former borough councillor and parish councillor for Kingsley, he will now enter pleas at Chester Crown Court on Tuesday, August 26.
He resigned from both councils the day before he first appeared in Northwich Magistrates Court earlier this year.
Mr Reaper, of Westbrook Road in Kingsley, who represented Weaverham for 10 years during the 1970s and 1980s, was charged by police in relation to an alleged incident in Runcorn between September 1, 2000, and May 31, 2001.
The second charge is in relation to an alleged incident in Helsby on May 16, 2003.
The alleged victims cannot be identified for legal reasons.
Mr Reaper is also charged with one count of indecently assaulting a male aged 16 or over in Runcorn on December 17, 2002.
He has yet to enter a plea after three court hearings at Northwich Magistrates Court.
He was granted bail on condition that he reports to a police station once a week and does not contact the alleged victims or their families.
He was also told to live at an undisclosed address in North Wales and not to enter Grange Comprehensive School.
The council seat at Kingsley which Reaper held is currently vacant.
