MCPS Music Teacher Joynes - New Charges: includes 14 criminal counts on a new child pornography charge, 4 additional counts of third-degree sex offense, and an additional count of rape.

A former Montgomery County music teacher charged with sexually abusing 15 students was indicted Thursday on 39 counts tied to the alleged abuse.
Lawrence W. Joynes, 55, of Dundalk, is charged with sexually abusing 14 elementary school students at New Hampshire Estates Elementary School in Silver Spring, where he taught for 10 years.
Joynes is also charged with having an inappropriate and sexual relationship with a student at Eastern Middle School in Silver Spring in the 1990s...

    1. Any particular reason you're referencing "music teachers" and not just "teachers"? Or "adults in positions of authority over children?

  2. According to this link,
    only two were music teachers, so you're absolutely right.
