An East Texas teacher finally gets his day in court. Jury selection began this morning in the trial of the former band director for Brownsboro High School.
40 year old Danny Burns is accused of having an improper relationship with a student, and with tampering with a witness. He was suspended from the district when those allegations surfaced last September.
Opening arguments began after lunch and wrapped up this afternoon. The prosecution began calling witnesses. The trial is expected to last through the end of the week.
