Ex-school band director back in jail on charges he molested another girl

A former Lakeview Middle School band director is back in jail on charges that he molested another girl.

According to a Catoosa County Sheriff's Office news release, 30-year-old Thomas Harold Blevins III turned himself into the local jail Wednesday after a grand jury indicted him on two counts of sexual assault of a student, two counts of child molestation, one count of enticing a child for indecent purposes and one count of false imprisonment.

This is the second time Blevins has been charged with sexually assaulting a student. According to Times Free Press archives, the parents of a 13-year-old girl showed Lakeview Middle School officials text messages allegedly sent from Blevins to the girl on the night of Thanksgiving, 2012.

After those parents came forward, another teenage girl told police that Blevins assaulted her. The girl said Blevins touched her vagina and that she performed oral sex at the middle school, according to an arrest warrant.

Catoosa County court records show that case is still pending.
