The Roosevelt Magnet School band director was indicted Tuesday for allegedly having a sexual relationship with a student. 34 year old Maury Beelman is charged with criminal sexual assault and two counts of aggravated criminal sexual abuse. Prosecutors claim Beelman's alleged relationship with the teenage girl began when she was in 8th grade but didn't turn sexual until she was a sophomore in high school but continued until the student graduated. Beelman's bond remains at 200 thousand dollars and he's back in court Thursday.
