The trial date for Gilberto Huerta, 52, of Greenwood, has been set for April 23 at 1 pm, according to the Sebastian County District Court Greenwood Division.

Huerta was arrested Friday (Feb.  21) on suspicion of harassment, after resigning from the school district earlier this week.

An arrest warrant states Greenwood Junior High teacher Gilberto Huerta, 52, bit a female student’s ear during class late last year and told her, “I’m going to eat you.” When the teacher walked back to his desk, he allegedly said, “Next time, I’m going to put salsa on it.”

The alleged victim told police the incident happened between Thanksgiving and Christmas last year. The girl said two other students sitting at her table witnessed the situation, according to the warrant.

    This is dumb. He was at the high-school when I was in school. I don’t believe he would do this. This sounds like the wild accusation on a pissed off junior high student.
