SMYRNA, Ga. – A violin teacher in suburban Atlanta has been indicted and charged with molesting three children.
The Times (http://bit.ly/1Xefrmr ) reported Friday that 85-year-old Leon Messerlian faces seven counts of child molestation and one count of computer pornography involving children after a grand jury indictment Monday. Messerlian was a teacher with the Oxford Academy of Classical Studies.
The investigation began after a student came forward with allegations.
Hall County Sheriff's Office obtained warrants last year that said the alleged molestation took place between Feb. 1, 2010 and July 17, 2015.
The indictment accuses Messerlian of molesting two other children between Jan. 1, 2001 and March 31, 2002.
The report said Messerlian has been released from the Hall County Jail.
