Student Article Leads To Durham Teacher Arrest

A band instructor in Durham has turned himself into authorities in Winston-Salem after a college newspaper published details of a sexual relationship between a high school teacher and student.

Twenty-eight-year-old Terry Lamar Jones Jr. was charged Monday with 64 counts of sexual activity with a student. Investigators say Jones was teaching at Parkland High School in Winston-Salem when the student was 17 and the teacher 24. Investigators say the sex occurred for seven months in 2007.

The first-person newspaper article refers to the teacher only as "Smith" and says he helped the student obtain an abortion.

Jones joined the staff of Durham's Shepard Middle School in 2010.

He is in jail in Forsythe County. It was not immediately known whether he had an attorney.
