Jeffrey Scott Atkins, 39, faces the additional charge of "school employee engaging in a sex act or deviant sexual intercourse with a student under the age of 19 years," the Shelby County Sheriff's Office said Wednesday.
Atkins is the former Oak Mountain Middle School band director. The investigation that led to his March arrest determined that he had been communicating with a student over texts and social media. Investigators said those messages were "sexual in nature," the sheriff's office said in a release.
Atkins was arrested on March 29 and charged with three counts of first degree sexual abuse, one count of enticing a child to enter a vehicle, house, etc. for immoral purposes, one count of electronic solicitation of a child and one count of school employee having sexual contact with a student under the age of 19 years.
After being arrested in March, Atkins was released on bond and awaiting his trial. His bond for the sex abuse charges filed in March totaled $555,000.
Atkins was arrested at his Alabaster home today and is being held at the Shelby County Jail on a $200,000 bond, the sheriff's office says.
