Music tutor accused of sexually abusing his student

EUCLID, OH (WOIO) - A local music teacher was hit with a slew of sex charges. A federal grand jury indicted Bruce Locke, 61, of Euclid, on 12 counts, including kidnapping, illegal use of a minor in nudity oriented material, and importuning.

Locke was a piano tutor who taught out of his home and the victim was one of his students. Prosecutors say the abuse started in 1999 when the child was just nine years old.

Locke will appear in court on February 17th, at 8:30 am.
