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.

    Who knows whether it is true, or if it was a fantasy by the young female. Remember, it was an article written, not a complaint filed.

    I agree , these girls are just as much of a teese on the men as the men are to give them the wrong impression. You hear the girls talk about it all the time . I beet you I can get him to kiss me , or I'll get him to look my way . But yhe men have to learn not to fallow thru with it , let it go , cause now their in the wrong . Their older they should know better.

    After reading the article, she is just as much in fault. She pursued him just as much. He should have known better, but I think if we start making these young girls accoutable as well, it would be less of this type of crime going on.

      Adults need to act like adults and follow the law. The U.S. and NC judicial systems have sex offenders coming out their ears. Confidential deterrent treatment needs to be made available, before these adults ruin more young lives as well as their own, costing tax payers 40k a year to jail them. There is a much better way to approach this stuff.
