Brownsboro Teachers' Trials Set To Begin

According to court records, jury selection is scheduled to begin tomorrow for a Brownsboro teacher accused of having an inappropriate relationship with a student. Donald Gene Dudley, 44, is charged with sexual assault of a child. The former biology teacher was indicted in Smith County in November. His trial is expected to last two to three days.

Dudley is also facing charges in Henderson County. Tomorrow, he's scheduled to hear the charges against him there for "indecency with a child."

Former Brownsboro High School band director Danny Burns is also scheduled to be arraigned in Henderson County. The 40-year-old is charged with having an "improper relationship with a student" and "tampering with a witness".
