Bishop Robert Finn is scheduled to go to trial Sept. 24.
A pretrial conference is scheduled before Jackson County Circuit Judge John Torrence on March 27.
The charges against Finn and the diocese stem from claims that the diocese waited five months before telling police about pornographic photos of children found on a priest's computer.
A computer technician found hundreds of "troubling images" on the Rev. Shawn Ratigan's computer in December 2010.
Finn acknowledged that he knew of the photos in December, but didn't report them to police until May.
