Gulf Coast High School orchestra, choir and guitar teacher Tara Buonamici describes that she walked in to one of the band dressing rooms on a specific occasion to find former band director Robert Hamberg and the alleged victim standing very close to each other. Buonamici said she felt uncomfortable with what she witnessed and later reported the incident. Hamberg is charged with eight felony counts of lewd or lascivious battery of a minor. If convicted of any of the eight counts, he faces a maximum sentence of 15 years in prison and a $10,000 fine. Lexey Swall/Staff
