Math teacher faces trial for sexual assault

STURGEON BAY, Wis. (AP) -- The Sturgeon Bay High School math teacher and track coach who's accused of having sex with a female student will stand trial on sexual assault charges.

Darren Berg, 39, of Brussels appeared in Door County Circuit Court Tuesday for a preliminary hearing.

The student, 17, took the witness stand and testified about her sexual relationship with Berg last summer when she was 16.

Defense attorney Brian Maloney asked the girl if she consented to having sex with the teacher. But, prosecutor Ray Pelrine says consent has nothing to do with this case. Pelrine says it's a crime for anyone who's in a position of trust to have sexual relations with a student.
