A 37-year-old Plano assistant band director is facing charges of having an inappropriate relationship with a student at Frisco Liberty High School back in 2008. The teenage girl was a senior in the band at the time of their alleged relationship.
Although the age of consent is 17 in Texas, a 2003 state law prohibits any primary or secondary educator from having a relationship with any person enrolled in his or her school. According to Star Local News, the school’s band director found the girl hiding in the man’s closet.
Both the band director and the assistant band director have resigned from the high school. An investigation by the State Board for Educator Certification is ongoing.
