The former Miramonte Elementary School teacher accused of feeding children cookies laced with his semen was back in court on Thursday.

Mark Berndt was summoned to L.A. Superior Court to set a start date for his preliminary hearing. The hearing will determine whether there’s enough evidence to move forward with a trial. 

Berndt is charged with 23 counts of committing lewd acts on children between 7 and 10 years old. He was in front of the judge for approximately five minutes before both sides agreed to postpone a decision another 60 days. 

Berndt’s scheduled to return to on August 16.
