Sean Dow

OLATHE, Kan. (AP) – A former music instructor in Kansas was sentenced to life in prison for sexually molesting some of his young students.

Sean Andrew Dow, of Overland Park, was sentenced Thursday for one count of aggravated indecent liberties with a child younger than 14.

The Kansas City Star reports authorities charged Dow last year with sexually abusing two students he gave music lessons to at Funky Munky Music in Shawnee.

Police learned about four other victims when investigating. The prison sentence he received Thursday was for charges involving all six victims.

Dow is also charged in Jackson County, Missouri, with first-degree statutory sodomy, first-degree child molestation, sexual exploitation of a minor and possession of child pornography.

Those allegations involve a 7-year-old girl in Kansas City.
