Former band director likely will not face charges

COVINGTON, KENTUCKY (FOX19) -

Former Holmes High School band director, Jared Murray, likely won't face criminal charges. Murray has been under investigation by the Covington Police Department for allegedly sending more than 100 inappropriate text messages to a female student.

Accord to Brandon Voellker, the attorney for the student, Murray said "repeatedly that I love you. I want you to be mine. Just not appropriate conduct."

FOX19 has obtained copies of the texts Voellker says were sent by Murray to the student.

FOX19's Amy Wagner asked Voellker, "Were there any texts that you felt were sexual in nature?" 

"Yes, slap on the a**," said Voellker. That text says "LOL… YOU BETTER NOT….. YOU ALREADY KNOW ILL SMACK YOU'RE A**IF YOU DO."

Murray also texts the student, "YOU KNOW I TRULY CONSIDER YOU MINE..." and "THESE ARE THE DAYS I REALLY WANT TO TAKE YOU HOME AND GIVE YOU THE LOVE YOU DESERVE."

"There was text messages going on between me and the student, and that they were deem inappropriate, so they asked me about some of them. And the ones I brought up are the ones I've talked about where the kid was going on an overnight weekend trip and they took one text out of context that said, is it just grand folks there or are your folks there too," Murray said on September 30th.

But Voellker disagrees, calling the messages clearly inappropriate.

Although, Voellker admits after combing through hundreds of pages of text messages between Murray and the student, the texts don't appear to have broken a law. 

"I don't think the laws on the books probably support it," Voellker said.

The final call on whether Murray will face charges will be made by Kenton County Commonwealth's Attorney Rob Sanders, who is expected to announce his findings on the case on Thursday.
