Popular Teacher, Coach Accused of Rape

On his Internet blog, boy's varsity basketball coach Corey Hogue expresses love and admiration for his student athletes at Oceanside High School.  He also writes about his family, including his wife, 4-year-old son and teenaged daughter.

In one blog Hogue wrote, "What's your motivation? Mine has to be family, being a great dad and creating good future fathers."

On Thursday morning, the 37-year-old man, who's also a health and physical education teacher, was arrested by police for allegedly raping a female student more than once.

Investigators say the first rape occurred two years ago when the victim was 15-years-old.  The second allegedly happened last month.  Soon after, the girl told school officials Coach Hogue was "annoying" her.

"Both incidents took place at his private residence," Sgt. Kelan Poorman said.

Hogue was arrested Thursday morning during a traffic stop.

"He was on his way to meet with the victim when officers pulled him over," Sgt. Poorman said.

Investigators say Coach Hogue and the victim, who's now 17 years old, had what they describe as a "intermittent" relationship.

They also say there's a reason why the coach is being charged with rape by force.

"Comments made by the victim allowed us to perceive that there may have been some type of intimidation involved," Sgt. Poorman said.

Hogue was booked into Vista Detention Center on four counts of sexual assault.  His bail has been set at $200,000.  He could be arraigned as early as Monday.
