A local band teacher is under arrest, accused of child molestation.
Luke Youngs, 34, works at Foothill High School. He was arrested last Friday on two felony counts of continuous sexual abuse of a child and lewd and lascivious acts with a child under 14.
Officials say the alleged victim is not a Kern High School District student. District officials say Youngs will be placed on paid administrative leave pending the outcome of the investigation.
He's due in court next week.
