BELLEFONTAINE - A high school band director in western Ohio has been charged with sex crimes involving two female students.



A Logan County prosecutor says 34-year-old John Shook, of DeGraff, was indicted Tuesday on single counts of rape and attempted sexual battery, five counts of sexual battery and three counts of gross sexual imposition.



The chief assistant prosecutor says Shook is in jail awaiting a court appearance. Jail records don't list an attorney for Shook.



The Bellefontaine Examiner reports the Riverside High School band director has been on paid leave since Feb. 4. The Riverside Local School District superintendent says the district in DeGraff will consult its attorney on Shook's job status.



The newspaper reports dozens of students and parents showed their support for Shook at a school board meeting last month.
