A former teacher at a Christian high school in Florida was arrested for inappropriate behavior with a student for a second time this summer — this time stemming from accusations she twerked on a male student at prom.
Julie Hoover, who used to teach at Point of Grace Christian School in Perry, was cuffed last week on charges of an authority figure soliciting or engaging in lewd conduct with a student and contributing to the delinquency of a minor, according to police records obtained by WCTV.
Hoover, 39, was previously arrested in June and charged with one count of an authority figure soliciting or engaging in sex with a student after allegedly exchanging explicit messages with an 18-year-old senior student.
The newest charges come after a student told investigators Hoover twerked on him and pressured him to drink alcohol at his high school prom on April 8.
He told investigators he became so uncomfortable while she twerked on him that other students tried to squeeze in between the then-teacher and the boy several times to try to get her to stop. At least two students who stepped in corroborated the incident, WCTV reported.
The underage student also said Hoover coerced him to drink, going as far as forcing the straw from her alcoholic beverage into his mouth.
It’s unclear if the student who Hoover had allegedly been exchanging explicit messages with is the same boy who brought forth the twerking allegations.
The initial sexting incident was brought to the attention of police on June 2 when the student’s mother discovered the sexually-charged messages between her son and Hoover from a period stretching between March and April.
The concerned mom told investigators that the former math teacher was arranging to have her son come to her home while her husband was at work, according to court documents.
Hoover is no longer a teacher at Point of Grace Christian School, a school official said.
