A former Alabama high school teacher who allegedly had sex with a student recently married her.
According to court documents, the ex-teacher and coach resigned after he was arrested and charged in the case and is asking court officials to ease a restriction that is keeping the two apart, the Associated Press (AP) reported this week.
“Thomas Blake Tucker, 25, included a copy of the wedding license in a court filing asking a judge to change conditions of his bond so the two can live together,” the outlet said.
The former East Limestone High School worker was charged a few months ago with being a school employee who engaged in a sex act with a student under 19-years of age.

Meanwhile, a 22-year-old teacher’s aide in Oklahoma has reportedly been charged for allegedly having sex with a 16-year-old student in the weeks after she started work.
“Her first day on the job was October 10 which was 15 days before she allegedly began talking with the teenage student on October 25 through SnapChat,” Breitbart News reported, adding the suspect, Ashley Waffle, was fired on November 10.
According to reports, Waffle faces two charges of second-degree rape that can carry sentences of up to 15 years in prison.
When it comes to the crime wave sweeping across President Joe Biden’s (D) America, an October poll found the majority of American voters laid the blame at the feet of “woke politicians” and only 11 percent said they believe crime is going down.
