SOLON, Ohio — The former band director for the Solon City School District has been arrested on accusations of a sexual crime involving a 12-year-old child.

Police say Edward Kline is charged with gross sexual imposition, a third-degree felony. The alleged incident occurred back in September of 2010.

Kline was taken to the Solon jail and was scheduled to be arraigned in Bedford Municipal Court at 10 a.m. Wednesday. Accusations against him were first reported by the Cleveland Jewish News back in July after multiple female former students came forward on social media and accused Kline of molesting them.

The investigation into Kline's conduct is ongoing, and more charges are expected once the case is presented to a Cuyahoga County grand jury.
