Former band director facing more sex crime charges

Former T.R. Millier Band Director Jeffery Gainous, who is accused of having sex with students, is facing eleven new charges.

Gainous was in court last week facing a charge of a school employee engaging in a sexual act or performing a sexual act with a student under 19. On Friday Gainous’ bond was set at $350,000 dollars.

Detectives said Monday, August 25 a judge increased that bond amount to $750,000 dollars.

The new charges include four counts of school employee having sexual contact with a student under 19; three ethics violations; one count of sexual abuse I; two counts of sexual abuse II and one count of unlawful imprisonment II.

Police said Gainous is facing ethics violation charges because some of the alleged crimes were on school grounds.

Brewton police said Gainous had sexual contact, including bondage, with eight girls ages 14 to 18.

He’s expected to be back in court next month.
