| Mar 3, 2014 | Sex Crime, Sex Offender, sexual battery


A Marion County teacher, already in jail on charges of having sex with a student, is facing more charges after police found another victim.

In January Ocala Police arrested Duane Adams, 54, for having sex with a 15-year-old girl who was a student at Francis Marion Military Academy where Adams taught and coached.

Police said during their investigation they learned about a possible second victim from the school who had been a student of Adams.

Investigators located the student who told them that she had sex with Adams when she was 16. Police said she told them one incident happened at a hotel in Ocala and another one on a sofa in Adams’ office at the school.

On Thursday investigators went to the Marion County Jail and charged Adams with two more counts of Sexual Battery by a Person in a Position of Familial or Custodial Authority.
