Jury Deliberations Underway In Trial Of Former Slinger Band Director

(West Bend) A Washington County jury is expected to begin deliberating sexual assault charges against a retired Slinger High School Band Director today (Wednesday).  Students say David Hanke gave them back massages, telling them it would relieve stress.  One girl — who was 16 at the time — says Hanke invited her to his home in Slinger, gave her a beer and asked her to take off her shirt for a massage.  Another former student said the 67-year-old allowed girls to change their clothes in the band room while he remained in the room.
