Attorney for the Pewaukee priest accused of sexual assault has 'prejudiced' the case, prosecutors argue

Prosecutors on Feb. 18 asked a Waukesha County Circuit judge to bar a Pewaukee priest accused of sexually assaulting a teenage congregant and his attorneys from making "extrajudicial" statements about the case.

The motion, commonly referred to as a "gag order," argues that statements made by the priest, Chuck Hanel, and his attorney, Jerome Buting, could unfairly prejudice the case or "disseminate otherwise inadmissable or irrelevant information."
