Mike Aaron Black, 28, the band director at Pasco Middle School in Dade City, was arrested in September 2006 after he admitted to having a sexual relationship with a female student.

According to prosecutors, Black started the relationship with his victim when she was 13 and a seventh-grader in his music classes. Black, a resident of Lakeland, was married with two young children. Black faced up to 45 years in prison if convicted at trial. He plead guilty in January 2008 and rejected a state offer of 15 years in prison.
