A band teacher in Oklahoma thought he was meeting up with two underage girls, instead was taken into custody by agents with the Oklahoma State Bureau of Investigation.

OSBI officials say earlier in the week, an undercover agent began conversing with Jason Ott via social media after he made contact with an out of state undercover agent posing as a minor female. 

Agents say Ott was wanting to have sex with who he thought was a 14-year-old girl. The out-of-state undercover investigator contacted an OSBI agent to continue the conversation. 

The OSBI agent, who posed as a 13-year-old girl, and the out-of-state investigator both agreed to Ott at a local mall.

When Ott arrived, he was met by more than a half dozen agents who took him into custody.

Agents say Ott taught band for 6th-12th grade children at Carl Albert High School in Midwest City. 

Agents arrested Ott for two counts of Lewd or Indecent proposals to a minor under 16, two counts of solicitation of a minor by technology, and violation of the Oklahoma Computer Crimes Act.
