Gould faces misdemeanor charges because he was arrested after a 19-year-old woman reported being sexually assaulted when Gould visited her at her home during the school day before Christmas break.

His trial will be held at 6 p.m. March 24 at Andover Municipal Court before Judge Gene White.

Gould resigned after being placed on administrative leave.
