Mark Cabezuela, 29, faces six years in state prison if convicted, said Deputy District Attorney Thomas McClain.
Following Monday's preliminary hearing, South Bay Judge Theodore Weathers found that enough evidence was presented for Cabezuela to stand trial May 27.
A readiness conference is set for May 7.
