JEFFERSON CITY — A band instructor at secondary schools in Jefferson City is accused of having sexual contact with a student.
The Cole County prosecutor's office says a grand jury on Tuesday indicted Christopher Knehans on two Class D felony counts. The indictment says both incidents involved touching a female high school student and happened in September.
KRCG-TV reports that Knehans is the band instructor at Thomas Jefferson Middle School and an assistant at Jefferson City High School. The school district placed him on administrative leave Sept. 29 pending the outcome of an investigation.
Messages seeking comment were left Tuesday to Knehans and his attorney.
