A music teacher at a Catholic school accused of inappropriately touching a student made his first court appearance today.

Lawrence Patrick, 65, is charged with three counts of sex abuse of a child. Investigators say he molested an 8-year-old student at least 30 times during private piano lessons at Saint Rose of Lima Catholic School in northwest Houston.

Bond has been set at $150,000. He is due back in court this Thursday.
