A beleaguered former Toledo area school board member is facing criminal charges.

54-year-old Patrick Hickey of Toledo is charged with three counts of 3rd degree sexual assault with a 13 year old.

He entered not guilty pleas to the charges Wednesday in Lenawee County court before Judge Laura Schaedler.

The charges stem from complaints filed in March of 1987.

He was released on $25,000 bond pending stipulations and will remain on probation.

Hickey is scheduled for a pre-examination hearing next week.

A preliminary hearing is scheduled for April.

Hickey announced his resignation from the Washington Local Schools board on Tuesday.
