MIDDLEVILLE (WKZO) -- An Allegan County Choirmaster is singing the blues this Christmas.

The Director of a catholic church Choir in Wayland, who had already faced four counts of Criminal Sexual Conduct for allegedly maintaining a sexual relationship with a minor girl for the last two years, faces an additional charge, now that a second girl has come forward.

32-year-old Nathan Lavoie of Middleville now faces five counts of CSC.

He had been placed on administrative leave by the Diocese of Kalamazoo but has since been fired.

Lavoie had been directing the choir at St. Therese Parish in Wayland.
