GREEN BAY (NBC 26) — A Green Bay teacher accused of sexually assaulting students at Baird Elementary School appeared in Brown County Court Thursday afternoon for an adjourned initial appearance.

Brown County Court Commissioner Chad Resar denied David Villareal's request for modified bond, opting to continue the $50,000 cash bond set one week ago that requires Villareal have no contact with minor victims, Baird Elementary School or unsupervised contact with anyone under the age of 18.

Villareal has been charged with two felony counts of sexual assault - sexual contact with a person under age of 13 and one felony repeated sexual assault of the same child.

Villareal has been employed with the Green Bay Area Public School District since 2014, according to the district.

In a letter to parents, the school district said Villareal was placed on administrative leave after the Green Bay Police Department arrested him for allegations of inappropriate contact between himself and students.

Villareal's attorney said Thursday that the Green Bay Area Public School District has transitioned Villareal to non-paid leave as he's unable to do his job.

A preliminary hearing was set for 10:30am April 29 via zoom.
