BREWTON, Ala. (AP) — A former high school band director charged with having sex with students in Alabama says "there's always more than one side to the story."

Jeffrey Lance Gainous said that, and nothing else, to reporters gathered Friday as he was led in a jailhouse jumpsuit into the courthouse in Brewton, Alabama. WKRG-TV reports a judge set Gainous' bond at $350,000.

Authorities say Gainous had sexual encounters with at least eight girls attending T.R. Miller High school. He's been charged with counts of sexual abuse, unlawful imprisonment and six counts involving a teacher having sex with students.

He was arrested Wednesday in Georgia, where Gainous had just started a new job as band director at Thomas County Central High School in Thomasville. He resigned following his arrest.
