Sander trial pushed back
The trial for Tom Sander, the former principal of Trinity High School who’s charged with setting it on fire in early March, has been pushed back.
A new date hasn’t been listed on the court docket but the June 24 pretrial conference and July 16 trial have been canceled.
Sander’s attorneys filed a demand for a new judge Tuesday, and Southwest Judicial District Judge William Herauf was assigned to the case Friday.
Sander is charged with Class B felonies of arson and endangerment by fire for allegedly setting a file cabinet ablaze in Trinity’s main office vault March 2.
Each charge carries a maximum penalty of 10 years in prison and $20,000 in fines.
