Ex-band director charged in sexual battery



Published: Fri, September 8, 2006 @ 12:00 a.m.



SALEM -- The former Salem High School band director was charged with sexual battery after he was accused of having sex with a Salem student.

James L. Purrington, 43, of West 12th Street, was recently indicted by the Columbiana County grand jury on a charge of sexual battery, a felony charge that on conviction can carry a five-year prison sentence.

He is accused of having sex with the 17-year-old girl May 26. Authorities declined to discuss details.

Purrington resigned last month from his $53,943-a-year job, citing professional and personal reasons.

He was arrested, booked at the county jail and released on a recognizance bond.
