BREWTON, Ala. (AP) - A south Alabama judge is raising the bond for a high school band director charged with having sex with students.

Bond is now $750,000 for 32-year-old Jeffrey Lance Gainous following the ruling Monday. It was $350,000.

Outside court, Gainous said he loves his wife and children and his sorry for the attention the case has brought.

Gainous was working at a school in south Georgia when he was accused last week on multiple charges of having sex with students at T.R. Miller High School in Brewton.

Police say the man had relations with at least eight students. They say girls were tied up and gagged in the band room and at Gainous' home.

Investigators say former students came forward after Gainous left Brewton in June.
