A former band teacher from West Aurora high school reportedly exchanged nearly 47,000 text messages with two students he's accused of having sex with.

Stephen Orland, 42, of the 2700 block of Bauer Road in North Aurora, was charged with three counts of criminal sexual assault and four counts of aggravated criminal sexual abuse.

Orland is accused of having sex with two female students under the age of 18 from October 2010 to April 2011.

Court documents revealed Orland exchanged 31,339 text messages with one victim and 15,552 text messages with another accuser.

Kane County prosecutors also say Orland sent the girls love notes and made sexual advances toward other students.

If convicted, Orland could face up to 45 years in prison.
