A married high school band teacher, 30 year old Jeremy Conner was arrested after he was discovered hiding in the closet of his 16 year old female student in Baton Rogue, Louisiana, was arrested by the police on Wednesday and charged with indecent behavior with a juvenile.
He was found at the 16-year-old girl’s home on April 8 by her mother who contacted police, but Conner escaped from the home before Police arrived.
Police launched an investigation soon after that led to his arrest this week.
WBRZ reports that Conner did not mention his arrest to the school and had not shown up for work since being discovered in the girl’s closet. The teenager was not a student at Westgate High School, where Conner works, she was a student at another local school.
The school later found out about his arrest from a news bulletin sent out by the Ascension Parish Sheriff’s Office on Thursday afternoon.
Conner admitted to police under questioning that he had been sending inappropriate texts to the young girl for the past year.
He was released from jail on Thursday on $50,000 bail, and more charges could be filed against the disgraced band teacher.
It was also revealed that Conner had been charged with aggravated battery in 2014 at his last job for an incident that occurred with a middle school student.
That boy said Conner threw a chair at him in the classroom, but charges were never filed after the teacher completed a pre-trial intervention process but he resigned from the school after the incident.
