More Sex Charges Expected for Band Director
Posted December 16th, 2013 @ 9:19pm by 700WLW News

( Northern Kentucky ) - 34-Year-Old Kenneth Owens was in court in Kenton County on Monday where he's answering to rape and sodomy charges.

Investigators say that when he was band director of Beechwood High School, he had sex with a 14-year-old female student. The judge kept his bond at $25,000 cash in part because Owens is facing similar charges in other counties.

He was originally charged this past September for allegedly having sex with a 16-year-old female student in his office at Grant County High School starting in 2011. In that case, his wife, Joann, was also charged with tampering with a witness. Investigators say she tried to get the alleged victim to not testify.

Also in Kenton County court on Monday, Owens' attorney indicated that they're expecting similar charges to soon be filed in Boone County.
