(Provo-AP) -- Trial of a Santaquin woman charged with rape involving a 17-year-old boy for whom she was a proctor parent has been set for April 26th in fourth District Court.

Twenty-six-year-old Amy Burke appeared yesterday before Judge Anthony Schofield, who scheduled the three-day trial and also set a pretrial conference for April seventh.

A proctor parent signs up to take care of ungovernable youth, usually ages 12 to 17, who need to live away from their families for a while.

Burke denies any wrongdoing and her attorney says she does not plan on entering any plea bargains.
