New hearing date set for former teacher charged with child abuse

HUNTSVILLE, AL (WAFF) -

A Madison County judge set a new hearing date for a former Huntsville City Schools choral director charged with child torture.

Investigators say a 2-year-old suffered third degree burns on both hands while in the care of Cleopha Pair.

School administrators placed Pair on administrative leave following his arrest. He resigned weeks later.

Pair was supposed to appear in court June 12 for a preliminary hearing. That hearing was delayed until July 24.

Following the preliminary hearing a judge will determine if prosecutors have enough evidence to send the case to a grand jury.
