Joynes manipulated a group of his favorite students, which he called his “lunch bunch,” to imitate sexually suggestive behavior — such as sucking on his or their fingers or on lollipops or sticks of candy — while he photographed and videotaped them.

Former Montgomery music teacher pleads guilty to sexually abusing children

A former Montgomery County music teacher who used photos and videos of 14 girls at New Hampsire Estates Elementary School in Silver Spring to fuel his sexual fantasies pleaded guilty to 14 counts of sex abuse of a minor on Monday.
Lawrence Wesley Joynes, 56, also pleaded guilty Monday in a second case to a charge encompassing multiple acts of child abuse, including second degree rape, involving one student who attended Eastern Middle School in Silver Spring in the early 1990s.
The pleas mean that Joynes, who is in the county jail in Boyds, will not go to trial as scheduled for the two cases on Monday and May 26, respectively.
The Gazette generally does not identify by name the victims of sex offenses.
Montgomery Circuit Court Judge Joseph M. Quirk accepted the guilty pleas in the case involving 14 girls and scheduled Joynes for sentencing on Aug. 28.
In the case of the middle school student, Circuit Court Judge Gary E. Bair accepted the plea and scheduled Joynes to be sentenced on Sept. 1.
Maximum sentences in both cases total a combined 113 years...
