HUNTSVILLE, AL (WAFF) -

A Madison County judge declared a mistrial in the case against a middle school band director accused of failing to report an inappropriate relationship.

Madison Police say John V. Nash did not notify police when he learned his adult son had an inappropriate relationship with a 15-year-old student.

Tuesday morning the judge barred the public from the courtroom because the case involved testimony concerning a minor.

After the lunch break, the judge stated the ruling was made in error and declared a mistrial.

A hearing over the privacy issue is set for July 10.

Nash's son, John Bradley Nash pleaded guilty to child pornography. He will be sentenced August 29th.
