Lawyers for a former Limestone County teacher and coach arrested for sex with a student say that he and his alleged victim are now husband and wife.

According to court documents, Thomas Blake Tucker, 25, and the student were married on Nov. 6.

Tucker was arrested Sept. 17, charged with being a school employee engaging in a sex act with a student under the age of 19. He was released on $30,000 bond.

Lawyers for Tucker told the court in documents filed today that Tucker has abided by bond restrictions, which limit contact and communication with the victim.

In a motion, Tucker’s lawyers want any bond restrictions limiting contact between the two to be limited.


The charge against Tucker is still pending, and it’s not clear how they were able to be legally married, unless the student is 18 years old?

Somewhat unrelated, but after mentioning Mary Kay Letourneau above, I looked her up and discovered that she died in 2020 of colorectal cancer. This was after a 2019 separation from longtime love and former student Vili Fualaau, with whom she had two children. The craziest thing I read on her Wiki that I didn’t know? Letourneau’s brother was a foreign policy adviser to President Donald Trump.
