Christian school band teacher accused of having sexual relationship with student

COBB COUNTY, Ga. — A Cartersville man is behind bars after police said he had an inappropriate relationship with one of his former students.

Craig Dean Godfrey, 38, of Cartersville, was a band teacher at the North Cobb Christian School.

Police said the school administration contacted investigators on Friday with information that Godfrey had been involved with a student from 2016-2019. The student is now an adult and no longer goes to the school.


“The investigation uncovered that the student was a sophomore at the school when the inappropriate relationship began. In addition to physical contact, evidence uncovered communication and explicit photos were exchanged between the suspect and the victim using a social media app,” police said in a news release Wednesday.

Godfrey was charged Tuesday with aggravated child molestation, sexual exploitation of a child and obscene telephone contact. He is in custody at the Cobb County Jail where he remains held without bond.
