    A McKinney middle school band instructor has been arrested on suspicion of indecency with a child.

    Marcus Antoine Hunley, the assistant band director at Evans Middle School, is accused of sending a high school student explicit pictures and video while he was a band director at R.C. Clark High School in Plano.

    Hunley has resigned, according to a letter the McKinney school district sent to parents.

    According to a felony probable cause affidavit filed in Plano Municipal Court, Hunley was arrested in late January after a former student told police Hunley told her when she was in the 10th grade that he wanted a relationship with her.

    Hunley was her band director, according to the document.

    "She was a student of his, and he confronted her and said he wanted to have a personal relationship with her," Plano police spokesman Officer David Tilley said.

    The woman told police Hunley began to email her and converse with her via webcam in the summer of 2007. She said Hunley would send her nude pictures of himself displaying his erect penis.

    The woman also told police that Hunley would stream live video of him masturbating.

    "The allegations we have was that everything was done online," Tilley said. "There were some exposure issues and some inappropriate conduct."

    The McKinney school district sent Evans Middle School parents the following letter:

    "Prior to the recent report of this incident, McKinney ISD was not aware of any cause for concern regarding Mr. Hunley.

    We take the safety of our students and staff very seriously. At no point after we received the information was this former employee permitted to return to his position or interact with McKinney ISD students."

    Tilley said Plano police "have nothing in [their] investigation to believe there are any more victims," but the district and police are encouraging others to come forward if they have been victimized.

    Hunley is free on a $7,500 bond.
