The Hinesville Police Department is investigating a Bradwell Institute band director after receiving reports that he had been exchanging emails of a sexual nature with a student.

HPD Maj. Thomas Cribbs said Friday afternoon that Daryl Wolfram, 31, of Hinesville, had not been arrested but was under investigation for suspicious acts.

According to an incident report filed Wednesday, Bradwell Principal Scott Carrier asked reporting officer David Guy to join him and assistant administrators Mary Alexander and Jason Rogers in his office, where Carrier told Guy he had been made aware of “inappropriate emails of a sexual nature” being sent from Wolfram to a student over the course of a few months.

The case was handed over to Det. Melvin Kesner.

LCSS Superintendent Dr. Judy Scherer said Friday that Wolfram had been cooperative with administrators and resigned from the school district Thursday.

“I honestly don’t know the extent of (his behavior); I don’t think anybody knows yet, that’s part of the HPD investigation,” she said, adding that administrators will report the incident to the Professional Standards Commission.

Carrier did not respond to the Courier by press time.
