All Lawrence W. Joynes’s students wanted to do was to learn music. But Joynes had other ideas. He would place his female students in sexual poses, record videotape of them, and then add sexually explicit captions—seemingly intended for a larger audience than himself. Fourteen girls wound up on Joynes’s illicit films, and prosecutors are certain that inappropriate sexual contact occurred as well. Sadly these cases happen more often you’d expect. If your child has been the victim of sexual abuse by a music teacher, contact our music teacher sexual abuse lawyers to help hold them accountable for their actions.
Assistant Montgomery County State’s Attorney Timothy F. Hagan, Jr., stated that Joynes “knew exactly what he was doing” and is “a masterful manipulator.”
“He grooms children to sexually abuse them,” he said. That’s what he does. “That’s what he used his position for—and it lasted for years in the schools.”
The crime of childhood sexual abuse is all the more horrifying and tragic when it is perpetrated by someone whom the community trusts—like a music teacher. When music teachers abuse their positions of trust and authority to sexually molest their students, it is especially traumatic for the students’ psychological wellbeing. It’s essential to be vigilant for the signs of sexual abuse, particularly when children spend a large amount of time alone with a particular adult (such a music teacher).
