State plans to drop charges against a Pewaukee priest accused of sexually assaulting a teenager

Eddie Morales and Steven Martinez reported at the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel.
"The Rev. Charles Hanel, 62, was charged with second-degree sexual assault of a then-13-year-old girl at Queen of Apostles Church in Pewaukee.

"But Assistant District Attorney Mike Thurston filed a letter on Wednesday, stating his intent to drop the charges at the next hearing on June 29."
The case has been pending since Fall 2018.

I wonder what impact this will have, if any, on the controversy over Historic St. Mary's parish in Pewaukee that Queen of Apostles leadership has been trying to demolish/sell.
