Former Butler band director's trial starts


The trial of a former area high school band teacher accused of having sexual relationships with students began Monday in Richmond County Superior Court.

Anthony Shelton, 42, has pleaded not guilty to three counts of child molestation and three counts of sexual assault against a person in school.

Shelton was arrested after sheriff’s investigators said they found evidence in 2008 that he had sexual contact with students while he was the band director at Butler High School.

Testimony continues today.
