VISTA (CNS) - Sentencing was scheduled Wednesday for an Oceanside High School basketball coach and physical education teacher who pleaded guilty to having sex with a female student, beginning when she was 15.
Corey Lane Hogue, a father of two in his late 30s, pleaded guilty on the day before trial to a felony charge of unlawful sexual intercourse with a minor more than three years younger than him.
According to terms of a plea agreement, Hogue will likely be placed on probation.
A one-year jail sentence will be suspended as long as the defendant successfully completes two years on probation, court officials said.
The victim testified at a preliminary hearing in July that Hogue began approaching her in the fall of 2007, when she was a sophomore. The girl said Hogue would come up to her in the gym and kiss her on the lips when no one was around. Their interactions escalated from there off campus throughout 2008, despite her saying she didn't want to have intercourse, she said.
Once she started having panic attacks, she told the detectives about the sexual behavior.
Hogue has been employed by the Oceanside School District since August 2006. Previously, he was a teacher at Orange Glen High School in Escondido.
Following his arrest, Hogue was placed on leave from his job pending the outcome of the criminal case against him.
