BREWTON, Ala. (AP) A south Alabama judge is raising the bond for a high school band director charged with having sex with students. <br />
WKRG-TV reports bond is now $750,000 for 32-year-old Jeffrey Lance Gainous following the ruling Monday. It was $350,000. <br />
Outside court, Gainous said he loves his wife and children and is sorry for the attention the case has brought. <br />
Gainous was working at a school in south Georgia when he was accused last week on multiple charges of having sex with students at T.R. Miller High School in Brewton. <br />
Police say the man had relations with at least eight students. They say girls were tied up and gagged in the band room and at Gainous' home. <br />
Investigators say former students came forward after Gainous left Brewton in June.
