Oblong, IL Band Director Facing Sex Charges in Indiana

Oblong, Illinois Unit Four Superintendent Jeff Patchett says there is no indication of misconduct within the school system involving Band Director Robert Yeley.

However, Yeley is facing charges of sexual misconduct with a minor and child seduction in Morgan County, Indiana.

Yeley is due in court on October 11th.

Patchett says Yeley is on an unpaid leave of absence and has not been on school property the school system learned of his arrest earlier this week.

Patchett says there's no evidence of misconduct in Oblong Schools related to Yeley's alleged actions in Indiana.

In the meantime, Steve Hardwick is leading Oblong's band program.

The Unit Four School District has a special meeting tonight at 7:00 to deal with personnel.
