A band teacher in Colorado was arrested on Friday for having a relationship with a 16-year-old student, the Colorado Springs Gazette reported.
David Hurd, 38, faces charges of felony exploitation of a child and obscenity.
In early February, an El Paso County Sheriff's school resource officer received a tip about the possibly inappropriate relationship at Air Academy High School. After an investigation was conducted, including interviews and social media reviews, officers obtained a search warrant for Hurd's home.
Hurd was arrested and booked into Aurora City Jail on $50,000 bond.
According to Nanette Anderson, a spokeswoman for Academy School District 20, Hurd was hired as a contract employee as a marching band coach at Air Academy High School and Liberty High School.
"As soon as the allegations came to light and the information was turned over the to sheriff's office, he ceased to be in any of our schools and did not interact with any more of our students," Anderson told the Gazette. "We're grateful to the sheriff's office to respond so quickly to investigate this thoroughly."
Hurd has worked with multiple schools across the nation as a consultant and choreographer for their marching bands.
Due to the nature of the charges and the victim's age, the sheriff's department announced they would not disclose any further details about the case.
Anyone with information on case is asked to contact the El Paso County Sheriff's Office at (719) 390-5555.
