Former high school band director faces sex charges

CALEDONIA (AP) — Authorities say a former Mississippi high school band director faces two sex-related felony charges, and at least one charge allegedly involves a minor.

David Tawan Chambers, 42, was arrested Monday on one count of fondling and one count of “computer luring” of persons under 18 for sexual purposes.

Chambers was the band director at Caledonia High School until Feb. 24. He resigned the same day the Lowndes County Sheriff’s Department opened an investigation. Lowndes County Chief Deputy Marc Miley says the offenses happened in the county and on school events in other Mississippi cities.
