Former Three Rivers teacher waives preliminary exam


A former educator who worked in four area school districts waived preliminary examination Tuesday on three counts of alleged criminal sexual conduct involving young men.

The case against Three Rivers resident David Wing, 59, was bound over to St. Joseph County Circuit Court for trial. No trial date has been set, pending a pretrial status conference.

Wing is charged with child sexually abusive activity and three counts of second- degree criminal sexual conduct, one count involving a person under the age of 13.

Personnel records for the former teacher, administrator and coach show he was investigated for six incidents of alleged inappropriate conduct with young, male students beginning in 1997.

Wing in 2012 agreed to resign and nullify his teaching certification in January 2013, in exchange for Constantine Schools paying for two additional years of retirement credit, a one-time $10,000 payment, and payout of unused sick time and insurance coverage.

Wing has denied the allegations. He has been free after posting a $100,000 cash/surety bond.
