Buckeye Band Teacher Brian Bizzell Busted Trying to Arrange "Quickie" With Underage Student

Buckeye band teacher Brian Bizell wanted a "quickie." That didn't happen. Instead, he's been charged with five counts of sexual conduct with a minor.
Brian Bizzell is a band teacher with the Buckeye Unified School District -- which is unfortunate considering he's also an alleged pederast.

Bizzell, who teaches at Estrella Foothills High School, was arrested early yesterday morning after police found evidence on one of his student's cell phones that he and the underage girl have been having sex.

In fact, Bizzell recently tried to arrange a "quickie" with the girl, according to court documents obtained by New Times.

The relationship between Bizzell and the girl was unearthed when another student found the girl's cell phone at the school. In an attempt to identify the owner of the phone, the classmate looked at some old messages and noticed sexually charged text messages from someone named "Brian."

The student grew concerned when she was able to identify the owner of the phone, who is one of her classmates, and noticed that the screen saver on the phone was a picture of Bizzell.

The girl turned the phone over to authorities, who contacted the owner of the phone's parents -- who, as you might imagine, weren't thrilled to find out their daughter was having sex with one of her teachers.

The girl's father voluntarily retrieved his 17-year-old daughter's laptop and allowed police to look through old Skype conversations she'd had with Bizzell, which included talk about oral sex and masturbation.

The girl's parents told police their daughter knows Bizzell well, and had even been to his apartment.

Police then interviewed the alleged victim, who admitted to having sex with Bizzell. She told detectives she first met him when she was 13, and he became her band teacher when she was 14.

The first time there was any sexual contact, the girl told police, was in October of this year, when she was 17, at a band function in Avondale. According to the girl, the two kissed.

The sexual relationship escalated in recent months -- in November, the girl says she and Bizzell performed oral sex on each other in a sound booth in the band room at the high school. The two had actual intercourse earlier this month, again in the band room at the high school.

Following his arrest, Bizzell admitted to having sex with the girl, and knowing she was underage. Then he had to call his wife (yikes!).

During the conversation with his wife, Bizzell suggested that as soon as he was released from police custody, the two should pack up all their belongings and skip town. He later clarified the comments during his initial court appearance, telling court officials he meant he wanted to leave town after the case was resolved.

Bizell was booked on five counts of sexual conduct with a minor and one count of luring a minor for sexual exploitation. He's being held on $72,000 bond.

it's pretty interesting that one of the bloggers here is claiming to be the accused party's sister lol.I want to clear up a couple of things for the record:#1, he has been charged with rape.  that would make him by definition a rapist, which means he committed acts of rape.  by legal definition, rape is a non-consensual sex act.  Because the girl is a minor, she cannot legally give consent, thus he raped her even if it was not forceful.  ie: he committed statutory rape#2, as far as the presumption of innocence goes... yeah technically he is innocent until proven guilty by a court of law, but keep in mind the fact that police need evidence to make an arrest.  analysis of archived text messages and skype conversations led to the arrest.  the article specifically states that there were dated references to encounters between the two.  I'm sure the police were able to confirm the accused guy's presence or absence based on travel records etc. oh, and he also confessed to having an "intimate" relationship with the 17 year old.

Idk wht to believe in the end, so I will not make any judgement until things r 100percent true. Half of ur immature cmments rent necessary folks, if u can't handle a serious situation don't get urself involved. Bizzell was an awesome freakin teacher. And I hope god has a good outlook on the situation and gives him proper punishments for wht he actually did, with evidence. U rock mr. Bizzell. Awesome teacher, miss ya. Nd eating sandwhiches everyday in ur class nd u getting mad at me. Lol if u ever read this. I don't support everything, but I do kno in the long run u r a good man inside. U made a poor mistake, but people rent perfect such as every person on this planet. Sum worse then others, but alls u can do is take in the punishment responsibly and of course learn ur lesson and get on the right pathway again. I do hope the best for ur situation bizzell.

I believe it. I made jokes to a few friends that the girl and the teacher would do sexual things. A mix of joking and a mix of serious. Well, that was about 2 months aog, when this apparently started. I never liked the teacher, and i never liked the girl. So my opinions are indifffierent.

He is a dirty man that used his job as a hunting ground for young girls. Most men go on deer and elk hunts this chomo goes on the hunt for underage girls.

yes what he did or didn't do was wrong i agree. but i also agree that people who do not know him or the situation shouldn't post false things. he was my teacher, when i was a sophomore there. he never was inappropriate with anyone, or to me. Yes the parents are mad if it was my child i would be too, but once you hit the age of seventeen and six months the parents cant accuse him of rap unless the girl states that its rape which she did not. HE is not a child molester and he did NOT rape anyone. it  was willing. yes she is underage, and yes the situation is incorrect. and for that if accused he will pay for his actions. but until then i think that people who do not know whats going on or are just being ignorant need to READ, he didnt rape anyone.

im not supporting what he did, im just clarifying.

Bizzel was the single best teacher I have ever had. I was in his choir class for one and a half years, and would have been there longer if I hadn't graduated.  He was, and is, a great guy. He talked to his students when he had the time, and made us feel accepted. I have a hard time getting into anything with a social aspect, and yet he was able to make me feel like I belonged there. I went to school for that class, to see him and my classmates. I had nothing going for me, no future in sight, but the man made me feel accepted, and that is the greatest gift any have given me.

What he and the girl did has done nothing to change my opinion of him. They were willing, both of them, and in 38 other states, that would have been fine. The problem is, Arizona is in the minority. In most states (read: Sixty percent of them) 16 is the age of consent. Eight more states have the age of consent at 17. If they had been anywhere in one of those 38 states, there would have been no problem. As it is, I am flabbergasted that people deem themselves fit to decry a relationship they have no part in. If someone were to announce that you and your significant other could not be together, would you find it fair that other people get to decide that for you? If it's not rape, there shouldn't be a reason to get involved. That's bullshit.

I hope everything works out for Bizzell and the girl, along with their families. People tend to be absolutely stupid, and now both parties involved are actually in physical danger. I wish them luck, and hope that everything works out for them.

And here is one more reason to ban cell phones from being used by students at public schools.  The freedom you give your daughter to "break down communication barriers" just might be used against her someday.

I'm more shocked by Bizzell's actions rather than the girl's. She is after anything and everything female or male. I'm really blown away that all the people from Estrella haven't addressed this. She is quite well known for that.

For the students reading this:  Even if the student participates "willingly", it's still wrong for a teacher (or any adult) to do this.  And the teacher darn well knows it. And it is not your job to stay away from the teachers. It's their job to stay away from you after school.  Period.

For the teachers reading this:  I am continually astounded at how many of you see absolutely no problem in having personal relationships with a student, be it text messaging, twittering, facebooking, phone calls, or what have you.  The number of teachers I meet that think that interacting with students on Facebook is OK just blows my mind away.  If you're a teacher and you are interacting with students using social media outside of school, I'd say that you have some serious "boundary" issues already.  And if you're a teacher and you see something improper happening between students and teachers, say something to the higher ups (and follow-up on it).  Some of the younger generation of teachers seem to have this idea that what they do on their own time is strictly their own business.  It's not

Being a teacher is a busy life. Combine that with being married, and you have an insanely busy life. Yet he has time for all this social media too?

With this many forms of social media being used with his students (twitter, livejournal, FB, youtube, stumbleupon, etc), it's pretty clear that he has boundary issues.  And shame on his district for not creating a policy that forbids it.  He's trolling for opportunity.  Casting a wide net.  Totaly getting himself out there.  Seeing what he can drag in.  Looks like he caught himself a fish.

He really was an awesome teacher. He was the director of Pirats of Penzance which I was in, and I found him hilarious. Not one of these people with stupid comments knows him like his students, yet they continue to judge his character like they do because of one big mistake he made. He isnt a perv or a rapist or anything, it was just fatal attraction.

HAHAHAHA fatal attraction???? Are you kidding me? Aly, he could be the world's best teacher but he still committed a crime and had a sexual relationship with a student--an underaged one at that. It's statutory rape and abuse of power.

People are being idiotic with their disgusting comments. Even if you don't agree with the man, be smart in how you put that across. But the people who are coming to his defense blindly are just as stupid. Even if the girl had been 18, it is still wrong. Do you not under that? He is in a position of authority, and whether or not it was consensual, it is an abuse of power. If they truly have feelings for each other, that needs to be put on hold until she graduates. I get that his students enjoyed his teaching (although the type of relationship he had most likely is what led to this), but you all are glossing over the fact he HAD SEX WITH A STUDENT.
