OLATHE, Kan. (AP) - A Johnson County judge has increased the bond for a suburban Kansas City music teacher accused of molesting students.

The Kansas City Star reports (https://bit.ly/1D1fDIT ) that 28-year-old Sean Dow of Overland Park, Kansas, is charged in two cases with sexually assaulting four students at a Shawnee music store where he taught. He fled from house arrest last month and was arrested five days later in California. He has since been returned to Johnson County.

On Wednesday, his bond was increased to $750,000 in each case.

In the request to increase Dow’s bond, prosecutors said Dow left a note when he fled indicating he was trying to “permanently avoid prosecution for these offenses.”

A hearing on a request to consolidate the charges into one case is also scheduled for Aug. 12.
