A 29-year-old music teacher was sentenced Friday to three years, eight months in state prison for molesting three students during piano and guitar lessons in Daly City last year, prosecutors said.
Danville resident Brian Butts pleaded no contest on June 30 to three counts of committing lewd acts in exchange for a maximum six-year sentence, according to the San Mateo County District Attorney's Office.
Butts was a guest piano and guitar teacher at the Music Art Studio at 200 Northgate Ave. in Daly City. While the music school's owner was in Spain, prosecutors said Butts touched young students inappropriately.
When the owner returned, two 13-year-old girls accused Butts of grabbing their breasts outside their clothing during music lessons between April 7 and June 8 of last year.
Prosecutors said a third victim, a 15-year-old girl, later made the same claim.
Butts was remanded by sheriff's deputies Friday to San Quentin State Prison. He will be registered as a sex offender.
