Police in Missouri have arrested 36-year-old Matthew Lang of Godfrey, the band teacher at Alton High School for allegedly having sex with a 16-year-old student. Lang has been charged with two counts of felony Sexual Assault and two counts of Aggravated Criminal Sexual Abuse. According to police Lang had sex with the 16-year-old female student more than once during school hours.

This is Lang’s first year at Alton High School, having taught previously at O’Fallon Township High School. I haven’t yet found out why he switched schools.

Lang’s bond is currently set at $250,000 and is being held in the Madison County Jail in Edwardsville.

The previous band director at Alton that Lang replace, David Drillinger, was fired after he was charged with inappropriately touching students. He pleaded guilty to misdemeanor battery.
