Possible Change Of Venue In Washington County Trial

The lawyer for a 67-year-old retired Slinger Band Director accused of having sex with a student may request the jury trial is held outside of Washington County. David Hanke’s trial is scheduled in April. A judge recently ruled three of eight other women who came forward after the initial allegations against Hanke can testify at his trial.  The sexual assault of a student by school staff charge stems from an incident in 2000 when Hanke allegedly invited the teenage girl to his home.
