Brian Hook, 53, was a social science teacher and the varsity girls basketball coach at Pioneer Valley High School in Santa Maria. Officers arrested Hook on Feb. 20 on charges including sexual penetration and oral copulation of a person under the age of 18.
Hook had a sexual relationship with the student since Oct. 2013, and multiple sex acts took place in Hook’s classroom, the search warrant states.
The student told Santa Maria police, though, that she came onto Hook.
“He didn’t do anything. He never came onto me. I’m the one who came on to him,” the girl said in a Feb. `9 interview with police.
The girl said she kissed Hook after class in October, and the next day Hook said he liked it, but it could get him in trouble.
Hook’s wife, an administrative assistant at Pioneer Valley High School, at one point contacted the student with whom her husband was having an affair, the warrant indicates. The girl received a voice mail in November from a woman identified as Mrs. Hook who said to stop contacting her husband because it is inappropriate.
Hook and his wife have five children. Hook entered a not guilty plea Friday, and he remains in Santa Barbara County Jail on $100,000 bail.
