LIMESTONE COUNTY, ALABAMA: Multiple reports confirm that Thomas Blake Tucker, 25, of Madison, and former itinerant special education teacher, and coach at East Limestone High School is now married. He was arrested on September 16 for charges of School Employee Engaging in Sex Act with a student under the age of 19. Though out on bail for $30000, he subsequently had to quit the job on October 25 after a special board called a meeting where they accepted his resignation. Thomas is now "lawfully married" to the same student he had sexual relations with.

Citing court documents, Tucker married on November 8, even when his current bond which he was supposed to adhere to, restricted Tucker from engaging or attempting to engage in communication with the student. "There is no petition or legal filing currently that would restrict the student and Thomas, a now lawfully and legally married couple, from communicating with one another," a report in The News Courier said.
