Former Texas School Band Director Indicted on Multiple Counts of Indecency With a Child


A former Keller ISD band director was indicted in eight cases of indecency with a child.

In total, Jedidiah Maus, 36, faces 17 child indecency related charges for reportedly making dozens of students go into the bathroom with him while he performed sexual acts on himself.


CBSDFW reported:

Maus was arrested on Oct. 8, 2021 after he allegedly exposed himself to a student.

The original charges were filed as a result of an investigation that began in Sept. 2021 after Keller ISD reported to police that a teacher had exposed himself to a student.

After Maus’ arrest, additional victims came forward with allegations spanning across several years.

Keller Police Detective Bethany Todd led the investigation.

“Detective Todd spent countless hours interviewing witnesses and victims, and corroborating evidence through video surveillance of KISD schools,” Chief Brad Fortune said earlier this month. “These investigations are difficult to work through and require the upmost professionalism, compassion and empathy. Her skills have brought justice to the many victims and their families.”
