The former teacher accused of sexually harassing six students in Kanawha County will get a new trial.

Tyrone Persinger's trial is now set for June.

Last week, a jury found Tyrone Persinger not guilty on two of the six counts.

The jury could not come to a decision on the other four charges, so the judge declared a mistrial.

On Thursday, another twist in the case.

Persinger's attorney wants the case dismissed because the prosecutor wasn't sworn in during the hearing when former Kanawha County prosecutor Bill Charnock abruptly resigned.
