Former Teacher Bound Over For Trial On Sexual Assault Charges

A retired Slinger High School band teacher suspected of having sex with a female student was recently bound over for trial following a preliminary hearing in Washington County Court.  Sixty-six-year-old David Hanke of Slinger retired in 2012. The alleged sexual assaults occurred more than 15 years ago when the girl was 16 or 17 years old. After Hanke was arrested in December, a number of other former students reportedly came forward making more accusations against him.
