WAUSAU, Wis. (WSAWNEWS) – According to reports, a former substitute teacher in the Wausau School District is set to begin a three-day jury trial on charges of two counts of first-degree sexual assault of a child.
In Marathon County Court on Tuesday, Zachary Robins, who is 28 years old, attended a final meeting with his attorney and the prosecution before his trial begins next week.
During the period of February 27 to October 15, 2019, Robins contributed her services to the Wausau School District on 19 separate occasions. At that time, Dr. Keith Hilts, the Superintendent of the Wausau School District, reported that Robins had substituted at nine different schools, completing a total of 10 full days and seven half days.

The trial has been set to occur between the 19th and 21st of September.
