Laurence Einuis: Second alleged victim comes forward

(WJLA) - There is now a second alleged victim as well as new charges against Fairfax band teacher Laurence Einuis.

Einuis was arrested last week, and as of Monday night, we know exactly what led up to his arrest: sexually explicit text messages.

We were the only station there as Fairfax County police searched Einuis' Springfield home and seized boxes of evidence: computers, cameras, and electronic devices. And on Monday, ABC7 obtained the affidavit that police used to get permission for that search.

It states that the father of the 14-year-old alleged victim noticed an unusual number of texts after 9 p.m. between his son and the West Springfield High band teacher.

According to court documents, the boy’s father was concerned that the teacher might be “grooming the student,” so an undercover officer posed as the teen online. Then last Wednesday, Einuis approached the student at school and handed him a note that read:

"Did you see my texts? If you were saying what I think you're saying, I'm totally cool with that. But first, we need to tell some of our secrets. I think I know yours, but you didn't say. SHRED WHEN READ.”

That night, the affidavit says Einuis once again text messaged the detective posing as the teen and “stated he wanted to 'make out' and touch.’”

Now, Fairfax County Police say Laurence Einuis has been served with five new counts after a second alleged victim has come forward. All of the counts are for incidents that allegedly took place between May 12 through June 4, and for “taking indecent liberties with a child in a supervisory relationship.”

Police would not say if the alleged second victim is a student, nor did they give an age, but did confirm that he is a juvenile male.

Police are still looking to talk to anyone else who has information about Einuis as the investigation continues.
