Winston-Salem, NC -- A former Parkland High School teacher is wanted on 64 sex charges.

Terry Lamar Jones Jr. is wanted on 64 separate charges of sexual activity with a student, according to the Forsyth County Sheriff's Office.

The allegations were made from a student he had contact with while working at Parkland High School in Winston-Salem.

Detectives said Jones is currently the band director at Shepard Magnet Middle School in Durham, NC.

The investigation started after the sheriff's office was alerted to a newspaper article on April 18 in the student newspaper at NC Central University. The student who wrote it said she and a former Parkland teacher, who was also the band director, had engaged in a sexual relationship.

The reported offenses occurred between October 2007 and May of 2008.

A statement from Winston-Salem/Forsyth County Schools said Jones was a music teacher at Parkland High School from August 2006 and resigned in November 2008.

"I am shocked and saddened by these charges," said Superintendent Don Martin in the release. "If they are true, they completely contradict what we expect of all our employees.

Investigators are still looking for Jones, who is living in Durham. Anyone with information is asked to call the Forsyth County Sheriff's Office at 336-917-7001.
