A Woodbridge dance instructor is facing sexual abuse and pornography charges stemming from interactions with a teenage student in 2014, according to police.

Detectives with Prince William County Police Department’s Special Victims Unit on March 27 began an investigation into an inappropriate relationship between the victim, who was 15 years old at the time of the offense, and the accused, which began in late 2014, according to Sgt. Jonathan Perok, spokesman for the department.

The accused was the victim’s dance instructor at the KLR Studios for Dance & Music, 2850 Garber Way in Woodbridge, during the time of the alleged relationship.

The interaction began with the accused soliciting inappropriate photographs and videos from the victim via the social media app SnapChat, Perok said in a news release. 

The relationship progressed to in-person, sexual encounters. The relationship was recently discovered by the victim’s parents and was reported to police.

Robert Lee Raney, 34, of Woodbridge, was arrested on Thursday, April 18, and charged with indecent liberties by a custodianpossession of child pornography, and use of communications systems to facilitate certain offenses involving children in connection with the investigation, Perok said.

A court date is pending.
