Jon North Lake County Band Teacher

Minneola FL, –

A Lake County high school band teacher was arrested Wednesday after he was accused of having a sexual relationship with one of his students, authorities said.

Jon North, 32, admitted he had a text relationship with a boy attending Lake Minneola High School that escalated to oral sex in the school’s band-room closet, according to Lake County Sheriff’s Office arrest records.

The relationship started in November or December 2015, the victim said, and became physical about a year later. The sexual acts occurred frequently — almost every weekday — for about a month, and decreased to once or twice a week until they ended in May 2016, authorities said.

The minor, who is 16 or 17, told authorities that North has a mole on his stomach, which officials confirmed.

North was arrested on five counts of unlawful sexual activity with a minor after the student told the principal, who reported it to the Lake County School Board. Authorities said North also confessed to having a previous “sexual situation” with a former student after he turned 18.
