Statutory rape trial for former Diamond School Board member will be held in McDonald County
The case is being held in McDonald County on a change of venue from Newton County.
Russow was charged with having sex with a 16-year-old Diamond student twice at his home, but the teen told investigators she had sex with Russow, 44, in two other places prior to the incidents in Russow's home.
Russow resigned from the Diamond School Board April 6.
