The director of a South Jersey high school marching band pleaded guilty Tuesday to sexually assaulting a student.
Jason Koenig, 27, of Hammonton, had been charged with assaulting a 16-year-old female student late last year preceding a band trip to Baltimore. According to the Press of Atlantic City, Koenig admitted to digitally penetrating the girl on four or five occasions.
In pleading guilty, Koenig faces a five-year prison sentence and must register as a Megan's Law sex offender for life.
A 2006 graduate of the school, Koenig was also director of Hammonton High School's jazz and marching bands.
