Teacher's Trial Scheduled July 17

A July trial date has been set for a criminal case against a former Western Dubuque School District teacher who is accused of molesting a child in Wisconsin.

Dale Soppe, of Fairfield, Iowa, will go to trial on July 17 in Barron County, Wis., on charges of indecent behavior with a child. The Waterloo, Iowa, native is accused of sexually abusing an Iowa boy in Barron County in 1969, when the victim was 13 years old.

The charges were filed in early May 2006. Because Soppe left Wisconsin, the criminal statute of limitations was stopped, enabling the prosecution to move forward.

Prior to the alleged sexual assault, Soppe was the boy's seventh-grade homeroom teacher and basketball coach in the Western Dubuque School District in Epworth, Iowa. The accuser claims Soppe molested him numerous times. After the boy's family moved, Soppe traveled to Wisconsin and allegedly abused him again there, according to court documents.

Soppe also taught at Dyersville Beckman (then known as Dyersville Xavier).
