A timetable for various legal processes was outlined during the brief hearing at the crown court.
Some will take place later this year although Orley was told that the earliest his trial could take place was almost a year away.
It was listed for May 8, 2023, and is expected to last for four days.
Judge Jonathan Carroll granted Orley, of Cameron Road, in Hartlepool, conditional bail in the meantime.
Orley first appeared before Teesside magistrates in connection with the charges in April.
