Band Teacher Charged With Sex Offenses

By  | 

A Currituck County band director quit his job, just a day before he was arrested on sex charges involving a student.

Allan Coyle was charged Friday with six counts of sex offense with a student and six counts of indecent liberties with a student. Deputies say Coyle quit his job as band director at Currituck County High School on Thursday.

Deputies say the investigation began after parents of a 17 year old girl brought the allegations to their attention.

A school website says Coyle was an ECU graduate and had taught at Currituck for the past five years.

The 32 year old Coyle of Moyock posted a $240,000 bond Saturday morning.
