According to court records, a former teacher and coach at an Alabama high school who resigned after being caught having sex with a student is now married to the same person.
According to AL.com, Thomas Black Tucker, 25, sought the court to remove the restriction preventing him from meeting the pupil this week.
A marriage certificate claiming that the couple was wed on November 6, 2022, was included in the file.
When Tucker was detained on September 17 and accused of having sex with a student under the age of 19 while working as a school employee, he was a teacher at East Limestone High School in northern Alabama.
Following that, Tucker was freed on a $30,000 bond with the requirement that he keep his distance from the victim.
The Limestone County School Board accepted Tucker’s resignation a month later.
It is unclear if the alleged victim was still a student at East Limestone when he was arrested.
The court is set to evaluate his petition at a hearing on Dec. 6.
