A teacher at a Christian high school in Florida was arrested after allegedly sexting with a student and trying to sneak him into her home while her husband was away, police said.
Julie Hoover, a 38-year-old teacher at Point of Grace Christian School in Perry, was charged Wednesday 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, according to police records obtained by WCTV.
Police were notified by the student’s mother on June 2 after she found the text messages between Hoover and the teenager that were exchanged in March and April.
The mother told deputies Hoover was arranging for her son to come to her home while her husband was at work, according to an arrest report.
Hoover was released from custody Thursday on a $15,000 bond, the outlet reported.
Hoover is a graduate of St. Leo University and has been employed as a mathematics teacher at the school since 2018, according to a LinkedIn profile,
The school has yet to comment on her arrest.
