Ferrell Trial Set For December

Quincy, MI

(COLDWATER) – A trial date has been set for a former Quincy teacher charged with multiple counts of criminal sexual conduct.

Branch County Circuit Court officials say 43 year old Jason Ferrell's trial is set to begin on December 5, with a pre-trial conference scheduled for November 20.

Ferrell had entered pleas of not guilty to two counts of First Degree Criminal Sexual Conduct and four counts of Second Degree CSC. Ferrell was arrested at his home in Battle Creek on April 19, following an investigation by the Branch County Sheriff's Department.

Police say Ferrell allegedly had an inappropriate relationship with a student. The first incident happened in August 2016 when the victim was 15 years old. She was 16 when the other incidents happened between October and November 2016.

Ferrell was an employee of the Quincy School District for 20 years. He resigned in January 2017, allegedly at the same time the school district placed him on leave because of allegations of inappropriate contact with a student.

Ferrell is still being held on a $300,000 bond.
