Bond denied Friday for accused band director

Travis McCauley

An assistant band director accused of molesting a teenage boy must await possible indictment and trial in jail. Bond was denied Friday for Travis McCauley, 32, who faces charges of aggravated child molestation, reckless conduct and contributing to the delinquency of a minor.

Assistant District Attorney Adam King argued against bond for McCauley, an assistant director of the CSRA All-Star Band who was arrested in April after the mother of a 15-year -old boy confronted McCauley with her child's account that McCauley coerced him into sexual encounters in March and April.

McCauley also faces a charge of criminal attempt to commit child molestation for allegedly soliciting another 15-year-old boy in the summer of 2010.

McCauley had only one misdemeanor marijuana conviction on his record, Assistant Public Defender Katrell Nash said in asking for bond Friday.
