Discovery Middle School Band Director John Nash is scheduled to go before Judge Linda Coats for a bench trial Friday.

His attorney, James Brice Callaway, wants that trial delayed.

Callaway filed a motion for continuance Monday afternoon.

Nash currently faces charges of failure to report child abuse, as police say he was aware of an alleged relationship happening between his 24-year-old son, andband volunteer, Bradley Nash and a 15-year-old student.

John Nash is currently on administrative leave from Madison City Schools as a result of the investigation.

Twenty-four-year-old John “Bradley” Nash is charged with possession of child pornography and electronic solicitation of a child.

The trial is currently scheduled for Friday at 1:30 p.m. at the Madison County Courthouse.
