Thomas Blake Tucker Bio – Thomas Blake Tucker Wiki
Thomas Blake Tucker, a former Alabama teacher who was arrested on accusations he engaged in a sex act with a student, has now married the alleged victim.
Thomas Blake Tucker is 25 years old.
DETAIL OF INCIDENCE:
Thomas Blake Tucker was charged in mid-September with one count of a school employee engaging in a sex act with a student under the age of 19, according to a Facebook post from Limestone County Sheriff’s Office.
Tucker was a teacher and coach at East Limestone High School in Athens, Ala. He was released on bond and resigned from his position a month later, News 19 reports. According to the Limestone County Circuit Court, Tucker has not yet entered a plea.
Now Tucker’s lawyers want bond restrictions prohibiting contact between the student and Tucker from being lifted since they are legally married, News 19 reports.
According to court documents, The News Courier obtained, the two were married on November 8.
“Right now we just want to make sure that Mr Tucker isn’t in any violation of his bond conditions … and so because of that, we filed a motion he at this point has not had any communication with his wife because of the bond conditions that currently exist and that’s why we’ve made this request to the court because again they are lawfully and legally married,” Tucker’s lawyer, Nick Lough, told News 19.
Lough also confirmed the marriage between the teacher and former student to WAFF and WAYY.
Tucker’s next hearing will be on December 6.
