NEVADA (KTNV) — School district police said a music teacher is under arrest and facing charges from an incident that involved a minor.
Jason Eric Markel, 37, turned himself in on April 9, according to the Clark County School District Police Department, after a warrant was out for his arrest on March 12.
The 37-year-old is facing two counts of unlawful contact with a minor after an investigation was initiated at B. Mahlon Brown Academy of International Studies, where he was working as a music teacher.
Police said Markel was assigned to home in January, per the negotiated terms of his bargaining unit.
He had been working as a music teacher at Brown Academy since 2019 and employed by the Clark County School District since August 2018.
