Oxbow Union High School’s (VT) three-sport coach/phys ed teacher Brian Musty has been coaching since 1989 and allegedly he got a little closer to one of his students than the law allows back in the late 1990’s. According to police, a woman who was a high school student at that time told her therapist recently that she had sex with Musty “hundreds of times” starting when she was only 15 and he was 28. According to the victim, these hook-ups happened at his home; at Oxbow Union High School including in a shower room between the coaches’ offices; in his car while the pair were driving to and from the school; and at his family’s camp in New Hampshire.
According to at least one report, the girl lived with Musty and his family during that period because her family had proven too dysfunctional and abusive.
Musty was arrested after police had the now adult woman call Musty to discuss their relationship and secretly recorded the conversation. Here’s more on the story from the Times Argus:
According to the affidavit, during that call Musty told the woman “nothing like that has ever happen (sic) since,” “I guess for me it was something like if it was just sex … I would have stopped calling you … once (you) got married and moved away and stuff,” and “maybe we did some things we should not have.”
He repeatedly mentioned caring about the woman and making mistakes, and said, “I mean it’s kind of why I got into teaching phys ed (to) try to help kids through high school,” according to investigators.
