Julie Hoover: Florida teacher detained for second time as she twerks on student during prom and sexts with another
Hoover was arrested on accusations of being an authorized person soliciting sexual behavior with children from her school
PERRY, FLORIDA: This summer, a former teacher at Perry's Point of Grace Christian School, Julie Hoover, was detained for the second time for acting inappropriately with a student; this time, it was allegedly because she twerked on a male student during prom.
According to police documents acquired by WCTV, Hoover was arrested on accusations of an authorized person soliciting or participating in sexual behavior with a pupil and encouraging a juvenile to become delinquent. This was the second time she was facing charges of involving herself with children from her school which led to her arrest. The case unfolded in a series of incidents that took place in a timeline from Hoover getting a boy drunk at the prom party to sharing explicit messages with another and instigating sexual behavior.
After reportedly exchanging explicit texts with a senior student, age 18, Hoover, 39, was previously detained in June and charged with one count of an authority figure soliciting or indulging in sex with a pupil. Inquiries from a student who claimed Hoover twerked on him and forced him to drink alcohol at his high school prom on April 8 led to the most recent allegations. Investigators learned from the child that he felt so uncomfortable during the twerking that other pupils repeatedly sought to move in between the boy and the instructor to ask her to stop. At least two intervening students confirmed the event, according to WCTV. Additionally, the underage student said that Hoover compelled him to consume alcohol, even going so far as to ram the straw from her alcoholic cup into his mouth. Hoover was persistent in her efforts to engage in sexual activity with her student despite having a husband.
It's not known if the kid with whom Hoover is said to have exchanged graphic communications is the same youngster who made the twerking accusations. But the student's mother found the sexually explicit texts between her son and Hoover during a time span spanning between March and April on June 2, which is when the police were first made aware of the sexting issue.
According to court records, the worried mother informed the detectives that the former math teacher planned to bring her kid home while her husband was at work. Officials from the Point of Grace Christian School confirmed that Hoover is no longer employed there as a teacher.
