CLEVELAND, OH (WOIO) - A former teacher at an all-girls school faced a judge Thursday morning.

Patrick Janson was arraigned following the arrest at his North Olmsted home yesterday.

The former St. Joseph Academy teacher stands accused of having sex with a student.

Janson was a music and drama teacher at the academy for 12 years.  He's been fired from the academy after information surfaced,  accusing him of having a relationship with a student nine years ago.

Police tell 19 Action News Janson had a relationship with a student from the Fall of 2000 through Spring of 2002. The student was a junior when the relationship started.

The prosecution dropped a bombshell in court Thursday morning, saying there were two more victims.

Janson's attorneys fired back saying the case for now only involves one alleged victim.

The judge set bail at $150,000.
