Scranton, Lackawanna County — A Dunmore teacher accused of having sex with a female student will face further court action.
Andrew Wally appeared in court for the first time Wednesday morning. He waived his right to a preliminary hearing.
Wally is accused of having sex with the girl for several months last year and giving her alcohol. Wally’s attorney says they waived the hearing so the girl wouldn’t have to testify.
Defense Attorney Chris Powell says, “There’s a lot of things moving along at the same time and that’s what we thought would be in the best interest of her and my client.”
Wally resigned from his position. He’s free on bail tonight.
