The attorney for former Luther band teacher Kyle Whitmus says his client will be fighting the charges filed against him this week.

Norman attorney Samuel L. Talley says Whitmus, 33, will plead not guilty to the five charges of sexual misconduct involving a child under the age of 14, including a charge of rape in the first degree.

His first court appearance is Thursday morning in Oklahoma County District Court. Whitmus remains in jail following his arrest on Tuesday.

The charges stem from an ongoing investigation that began in April 2015 after a student’s parents went to authorities about an alleged sexual relationship, according to a release from the Oklahoma State Bureau of Investigation. Whitmus was suspended from his teaching position at LPS and later resigned.
