Volunteer band instructor charged with sexual battery

VENICE (FOX 13) -

An 18-year-old volunteer band instructor is facing sexual battery charges after police say he inappropriately touched a 14-year-old student.

It doesn't appear that it happened at school, rather at the Venice Regional Medical Center parking lot, police said.

Administrators at Venice High School were notified about the possible incident, the mother was contacted, and an investigation revealed several different criminal acts.

Investigators looked through the cell phone of the suspect, Johnathan Daniel Ranew.

Police say he confessed to several offenses, police say. The incident at the medical center happened Thursday.
