Band Teacher Indicted On Sex Charges

A Peoria Dist. 150 teacher is indicted for an alleged sexual relationship with a student.

34-year-old Maury Beelman, a band teacher at Roosevelt Magnet School, is charged with criminal sexual assault and aggravated criminal sexual abuse.

Prosecutors say his relationship began when the girl was in the 8th grade, but didn't become sexual until her sophomore year, lasting until she graduated.

If convicted of all charges, Beelman faces up to 15 years behind bars.

He's still in the Peoria County Jail on $200,000 bond, and will be arraigned Thursday.
