Band director wont teach in Albany

June 16, 2006

Albany - - A former teacher arrested in Camilla for child molestation will not work in Dougherty county schools. 

Terrance Keaton Jones was a band director in Mitchell county. He applied to work at Monroe High School in Albany.

The school board considered hiring Jones until they learned about his arrest on child molestation and statutory rape charges. He accused of having sex with a 15-year old student.  

"We had an applicant who was qualified, who passed the background check, who passed the Board, the board approved hiring him, but found out he had some legal difficulties so the job offer was rescinded and he never signed a contract," says Deputy Superintenent Carlos Keith. 

Keaton also worked as an assistant director for the South Georgia Wildcat's Marching band. He was released from the Mitchell County jail on a $20,000 dollar bond.
