Albany Patch will report on the outcomes of both hearings.
Raymond Anderson, who was charged earlier this year with six counts of molestation related to twin girls who lived with him in the 90s, is scheduled for a 9 a.m. hearing at the Rene C. Davidson Courthouse in downtown Oakland, Department 10.
According to the Alameda County sheriff's department, Anderson's attorney has filed a motion to set aside information related to Anderson's case. Anderson has been in custody since his arrest earlier in February.
In June, a judge ruled that the case against Anderson could move forward to trial following the testimony of police officers and both alleged victims.
Albany Middle School teacher James Izumizaki is scheduled to appear in court Friday afternoon for his arraignment.
Police arrested Izumizaki on Wednesday morning after school officials alerted police to allegations of improper conduct with a former student. Izumizaki was placed on paid adminstrative leave Monday, and arrested on suspicion of lewd acts upon a minor younger than 14. He has not yet been charged.
Izumizaki's arraignment is scheduled to take place in Department 112 of the Wiley W. Manuel Courthouse in downtown Oakland at 2 p.m.
