Ex-Florida teacher accused of twerking on prom student


A former Florida Christian school teacher was arrested on Tuesday for allegedly twerking an 18-year-old student at prom in April. She is also accused of pressuring him to drink alcohol at the event.

Julie Hoover, 39, a former teacher at Point of Grace Christian School in Perry, faces a misdemeanor charge of contributing to the delinquency of a minor and a second-degree felony charge of a figure of authority soliciting or engaging in lewd conduct with a student, according to police via WCTV.

Investigators allege Hoover pressured the senior student to drink alcohol at the prom. At one point, the teacher at the time forced the straw from the cup of his booze into his mouth.

Hoover had alcohol at the event due to drinks being placed in a back room for staff to use later after the students left.

The student also told investigators that Hoover was “twerking” at him on the dance floor, prompting some students to get between him and the teacher at the time. The 18-year-old noted that it made him feel uncomfortable.

Hoover had been accused in June of texting an 18-year-old college student and trying to sneak him into her home while her husband was at work, Breitbart News reported.

It is unclear whether the two separate charges involve the same student.

An official at Point of Grace Christian School said he was aware of the additional allegations against Hoover, according to WCTV.

Hoover is no longer employed by the school, according to a Point of Grace official.

“The Taylor County Sheriff’s Office informed us of the allegations against Ms. Hoover, and we have been cooperating with the investigation. Out of respect for the legal process, we will not comment further at this time,” the official said in a statement.
