A dance instructor and DJ faces a sexual assault charge with a minor after Greenacres police say he forced himself on a girl who was 15-years-old at the time.
Jesse Daniel Coursey was arrested on Thursday and appeared before a judge Friday morning.
Investigators say Coursey used his position as a DJ and studio dance instructor to prey on younger students.
They say on at least one occasion he made alcohol available while one dance student was babysitting his three kids -- and then sexually assaulted the 15-year-old when she became intoxicated.
"It makes me sick to my stomach to think about it because I taught with him for a long time. I know his family personally. I know his kids very well, I know his ex-wife very well. And I know him from working with him and being at his house," a former co-worker said.
Neither Coursey's family nor his attorney wanted to comment.
Investigators say there could be more victims because Coursey was exposed to so many young girls.
