HERMANN, Mo. (KMOX/AP) –  A high school band director from Hermann Missouri is accused of exchanging sexually explicit emails with a student.

Among the charges against 31-year-old Joshua James are furnishing pornography to a minor and “using a child in a sexual performance”.

The alleged contact took place between James and a 16-year-old female student in the Gasconade County school district, and reportedly involved illicit photos.

James is free on bond and has resigned from his band director job.
