JACKSONVILLE, North Carolina — The former band director at Jacksonville High School has been placed on probation for having a sexual relationship with one of his students.

The Daily News of Jacksonville reported ( that 35-year-old Christopher D. Howard pleaded guilty to sexual activity with a student earlier this year.

He has now been sentenced to three years of probation.

Onslow County sheriff's deputies in 2012 charged Howard with three counts of sexual activity with a student by a teacher and four counts of taking indecent liberties with a student.

Deputies said Howard had sex with the girl a number of times, including once in the school's band room.

District Attorney Ernie Lee said the relationship ended when the couple was found in a car on a deserted area.
