Prosecutors have decided there is insufficient evidence to charge a Pasadena school teacher with inappropriately touching a 15-year-old girl in his classroom. Truu "Richard" Hang, 33, of San Gabriel, a high school teacher at Marshall Fundamental School, was arrested on suspicion of sexual battery last Friday and suspended from his job without pay. The girl alleged that Hang had touched her inappropriately below the waist during a Sept. 19 math lesson.
