WASHINGTON, Pa. - The Trinity School District superintendent accused of driving under the influence faced a judge Thursday.
 
Paul Kasunich, who’s charged with DUI, waived his right to a hearing and will stand trial.
 
Authorities said Kasunich was topped by Ohio Township police last month when they said his car swerved into the opposite lane on Mount Nebo Road.
 
According to police, Kasunich failed a sobriety test.
 
Kasunich’s defense attorney said Kasunich regrets his actions and hopes parents and students will understand.
 
“We recognize he showed a lapsed judgment and drank a little too much,” said Bob Del Greco.
 
Parents have packed school board meetings and have been outspoken about the arrest.
 
Del Greco said Kasunich has no plans to step down.
