FARMINGTON Utah (ABC 4 Utah) - A high school teacher will stand trial for sexually abusing a student.

Steve Niedzwiecki was fired from his teaching position at a charter school in West Haven...

Niedzwiecki was charged with eight counts of forcible sodomy, two counts of forcible sexual abuse and attempted rape.

Niedzwiecki was a former teacher and basketball coach at Quest Academy and Jefferson Academy. He was terminated from his teaching position at Quest Academy after he was charged in December.

The victim says she befriended the teacher and worked on a project together. But according to the probable cause statement, the girl and the teacher were trading emails and text messaging. In court she testified that their relationship turned physical and became sexual. She claimed Niedzwiecki promised to marry her after their relationship turned sexual.

"He was a trusted teacher, a coach and was very manipulative," said the victim's aunt Kathy Carver...

Mr. Niedzwiecki was a science teacher at Quest. He was never a basketball coach at Quest. His victim was a student at Jefferson Academy. When Mr. Niedzwiecki was hired by Quest, he passed a background check, and was qualified for the position. When Mr. Niedzwiecki was arrested, his employment was terminated at Quest Academy. I am very aware of this, as I am an employee at Quest Academy.
