TULSA, OK -- The preliminary hearing began on Wednesday for a former Tulsa middle school teacher accused of sexually assaulting a teenage boy.

John Gisler was arrested in July. He is accused of sexually assaulting a teenage boy. Gisler faces a string of felony charges, including rape and possession of child pornography.

Earlier this month, Tulsa Public Schools voted to terminate his position as a teacher. Gisler had been a science teacher at Whitney Middle School since August 2005 and taught previously in Sand Springs and Sapulpa.
