Luke Youngs, 34, is being charged with continuous sexual abuse of a child and lewd or lascivious acts with a child under 14. The alleged 12-year-old victim is not a student of Foothill High School where Youngs was working as the school’s band director.
Police said Youngs admitted that he touched the girl’s genital area, buttocks and breasts for his own sexual gratification. The alleged sexual abuse began when the girl was 9-years-old and continued until she was 12.
From 2006 through 2008 Youngs taught at Arroyo Grande High School.
