Steinbrenner High Band Teacher Accused of Having Sex with Student
He engaged in sexual acts with the female student both on and off-campus for about seven months, Hillsborough deputies say.
LUTZ – A Steinbrenner High School band teacher has been arrested on charges connected with a seven-month long affair with one of his students, the Hillsborough County Sheriff’s Office said.
Jason Phillip Allgair, 35, of Tampa, was charged with 30 counts of Authority Figure Engaging in Sexual Conduct with a Student.
Deputies said that, on Friday (June 5), they met with a woman who provided evidence that, while she was a 17-year-old student at Steinbrenner High School in Lutz, she was involved in a relationship with Allgair, a band teacher at the high school. Between October 2017 and May 2018, Allgair engaged in sexual acts with the female student both on and off-campus.
“The care and protection of young students is a teacher’s duty. Jason Allgair’s alleged actions violated the trust of not only one student, but also the parents, school faculty and community that entrusted him with their children,” said Sheriff Chad Chronister. “I commend the victim for finding the courage to speak out about what happened.”
