UPDATE - Two preliminary hearings are scheduled for the bus driver accused of exposing himself to a child.

Bobb Bergman was arrested and charged in April after an 11 year old Merrill student told his parents he received unwanted text messages from Bergman.

Earlier this month Bergman's lawyers argued that three of the four felony counts filed should be dropped.   The court denied the motion.

The preliminary hearings are set for October 19, 2012 and November 16, 2012.
