Destrehan band director arrested on sex charges
Destrehan band director Byron Toups was arrested by the St. Charles Parish Sheriff’s Office this morning and charged with molestation of a juvenile, indecent behavior with a juvenile and simple battery.

Toups allegedly had sex with a 16-year-old student at his home, and in a separate incident last summer, allegedly attempted to kiss an unwilling 17-year-old student during band camp at Destrehan High School.

 

Toups will be arraigned on these charges tomorrow morning.

 

The investigation is ongoing and anyone having information on these incidents or other activities involving Toups are encouraged to contact Detective Sergeant Roanne Sampson at 985-783-1135.
