Former band director denies sexual relationships

A former Butler High School band director accused of having sexual relations with three students took the witness stand Tuesday and denied the existence of any such relationship.

Anthony Shelton, 42, testified as the final witness in his Richmond County Superior Court trial. Earlier, three former students testified that each had had sexual relations with Shelton during the 2007-08 school year.

The jury will begin deliberations after the attorneys’ closing arguments and the judge’s instructions on the law Wednesday morning.
