A Brooke County Middle School band director currently on administrative leave was in court yesterday on three sex-related charges.
Timothy Turner of New Cumberland was indicted on single counts of sexual abuse by a person in a position of trust to a child, one count of sexual abuse in the third degree, and one count of soliciting a minor via computer.
Turner turned himself in to authorities in August. The allegations stem from an incident in 2015 that did not take place on school grounds, officials said.
Turner waived his time for trial during this term of court. His next hearing will be held Jan. 31.
