Former USD232 social studies teacher Keil Hileman and his attorney Scott Gyllenborg appeared in court Friday, Oct. 20 to request changes to the bond agreement, specifically that Hileman be allowed off house arrest. Hileman has been on house arrest since Oct. 26, 2022 following being charged with six counts of unlawful sexual relations with students.

Gyllenborg made the case that “there is no statistical risk of any contact with the alleged victims.” The prosecution’s representative disagreed. The judge will make a final decision on the request once both parties have communicated via email next week. 

Gyllenborg stated that both parties are attempting to reach a plea agreement. According to Gyllenborg, the defense is waiting on a written report from an evaluation, which they expect to receive in the next few weeks. Gyllenborg will then share the results of the report with the prosecution. The judge said that both parties will need to reach a plea agreement by the next court appearance, Thursday, Dec. 7, or the case will go to trial next year. 

This past summer, Hileman removed all personal items from his previous classrooms, which also served as a museum of historical artifacts. The district spent a total of $6,025 on security to oversee the removal from June 8 to June 15, according to financial records.
