By Khristopher Flack, Globe Correspondent
The choir director at a Worcester charter school has been charged with raping a teenager.
Tyrone Forbes, who led the choir at the Seven Hills Charter School, was arraigned in Worcester District Court today on seven counts of rape, Worcester County district attorney's spokesman Tim Connolly said.
Forbes, 49, allegedly raped a 15-year-old boy, whose name was withheld. The student is not a student at the charter school, said Sergeant John Lewis, supervisor of the Worcester Police Department's Special Crimes Division.
No other details were released on Forbes's alleged crimes. Forbes is being held on $5,000 bail.
If he posts bail, he will be required to wear a GPS monitor and stay at least 100 yards away from the victim, Connolly said. Forbes's next court appearance is scheduled for May 2.
