Teens says coerced into sex with Augusta band leader

AUGUSTA, Ga. - Richmond County officials say an assistant band director has been arrested on charges he coerced a 15-year-old boy into engaging in sex acts.

The county Sheriff's Office says 32-year-old Travis McCauley, assistant director of the CSRA All-Star Band, went to the boy's home three weeks ago, where they had sex. The sheriff's office says it was told it happened again a week ago.

Officials say the boy then learned McCauley is HIV-positive.

The sheriff's office says McCauley was arrested Wednesday on charges of contributing to the delinquency of a minor, aggravated child molestation and reckless conduct by an HIV-infected person.

A jail spokesman said Thursday McCauley is being held without bond, and did not know if he had an attorney. A telephone call to his home was not immediately returned.
