The former band director at Alton High School has pleaded guilty to having sex with a 16-year-old student.

Matthew Lang, 36, made the plea on Tuesday, some six months after first being accused of the crime. He could face as much as 15 years in prison and be forced to serve at least 85 percent of the sentence.

Remarkably, Lang is the third Alton band instructor since 2007 to be accused of inappropriate contact with students.
