ATHENS – A flutist and member of the Athens State Orchestra was sentenced to 30 years and 6 months in jail on Monday for sexually molesting two of his young students.

Among other charges, he was also found guilty of possession of child pornography material and illegal arms and he was fined in addition with 100,800 euros.
