The former band director of Venus High School has been indicted by a Johnson County grand jury on charges he had an improper sexual relationship with a student.
Jason Jack Rabinowitz, 35, of Grand Prairie, is accused of having sexual contact with the female student on Feb. 25, according to the indictment handed up last month.
The victim was a student at Venus High School, according to the indictment.
Johnson County District Attorney Dale Hanna declined to comment about the pending case. Rabinowitz could not be reached for comment.
Venus ISD Superintendent Billy Matthews said Rabinowitz worked as band director in the Venus ISD from July 28, 2008 until he resigned on May 11. Matthews declined to comment on the charge.
In a profile posted on LinkedIn.com, Rabinowitz said he managed the band program from 6th through 12th grade in the Venus ISD.
His profile also notes that he worked as an associate director of bands for the College Station ISD for about nine years, from June 1999 until June 2008.
The Texas Education Agency website indicates that his teacher certification is under investigation.
