Columbia County authorities arrested the former band director from Evans High School over the weekend on allegations that he tried to meet a female student for sex.

Anthony Jarvis Alberti, 29, was charged Saturday with a grand jury arrest warrant for criminal attempt to commit a felony. The attempted felony was “sexual assault by a person with supervisory authority.” He is free on bond.

The girl was 18 when they were communicating last April 2020. The pandemic had just forced learning to go virtual. That’s when the band teacher and student were communicating about meeting up for sex, authorities said.

Authorities say the female student sent Alberti several inappropriate pictures and videos, including a video of herself nude and masturbating. It also came at a time when Alberti was married and welcoming a new child into the world, posting about it on an Instagram page called Daddy Diaries 2.0.  

The female student reportedly was drunk when her parents checked on her in the bathroom. They saw Alberti trying to call their daughter. They later alerted authorities of the inappropriate relationship.

Alberti resigned in April 2020 after the allegations surfaced. Three months later, his license was suspended by the state’s Professional Standards Commission, and a grand jury indicted him on Sept. 23.

Records show that the suspect worked previously as a Evans High teacher and assistant band director with earlier jobs in Savannah and Statesboro.
