BRUNSWICK COUNTY, NC (WWAY) — The former North Brunswick High School band teacher accused of sending an inappropriate text to a student avoided jail by showing up for court this morning. WWAY was the only media outlet in the courtroom for Mark Riel’s hearing.

Riel was charged with one count of indecent liberties with a minor, after allegedly sexting with one of his students in January.

His trial date was rescheduled because his attorney was out of town.

After failing to appear for his last court date, an arrest order was issued for Riel, but it was recalled today.

Riel ran away when we tried to talk with him in the courtroom.
