Joseph Okumu, a primary school teacher in Bungoma was charged with defiling an 11-year-old pupil.
The suspect allegedly abused the standard seven learner at the school library on March 8.
Okumu denied the accusations before Principal Magistrate Stephen Mogute, who heard the case in camera since it involved a minor.
The victim's mother claimed the school's administration had tried to interfere with the case.
"The incident took place last term but I learned about it when my daughter narrated the story this month," she said. "I took her to hospital for a check-up and it was confirmed that she was defiled."
