A Sequoyah Public Schools music teacher was arrested Monday afternoon for allegedly having sex with a 14-year-old student.

Mark Thomas Buchanan, 34, of Claremore, was booked into a Rogers County jail without bond.

Police said Buchanan's wife spoke with them Monday and told them her husband had admitted to having sex with a 14-year-old girl. Kelly Buchanan said he had come forward because the student had told him that she was "late," and feared that she was pregnant.

According to a probable cause affidavit, Buchanan is accused of having sex with the student in a closet attached to the choir room at a Sequoyah public school on four separate occasions, over the last six months.

Buchanan faces 18 charges total, including four counts of rape in the first degree, six counts of lewd molestation, and eight counts of sodomy.

Sequoyah Public Schools said Tuesday that Buchanan has been suspended with pay.
