A former physical education teacher for Oceanside High School was in court this month, requesting unsupervised visits with his 15-year-old daughter. A San Diego County Superior Court judge denied that request, although supervised visits were allowed.

Corey Lane Hogue, now 39, pleaded guilty in 2010 to having sexual intercourse with a female high school student when she was 15 years old. The student with whom he admitted having sexual intercourse was born in 1992. Hogue reportedly has two daughters, born in 1995 and 1997, who live out-of-state with their mother.

Corey Lane Hogue avoided a prison term in his plea deal two years ago, and has been on probation. He lives in Oceanside with his 7-year-old son and third wife. Hogue’s current wife reportedly has a 10-year-old daughter who lives with her father.

As part of his probation, a judge ordered Hogue: “Do not participate in computer chat rooms or otherwise contact minors via computer.” However, when a probation officer directed Hogue to cease all “personal activity” on Craigslist and Facebook websites, Hogue’s private attorneys filed motions with the court, asserting that “Craigslist’s main focus is classified ads and it is not a social media website.”

Judge Aaron Katz subsequently admonished Hogue to “comply with every single directive from your probation officer.” Hogue was further ordered to complete a sex offender program, his access to the Internet is to be monitored, and his term of probation was extended another year, to December of 2014.

In a hearing this month, Judge Katz allowed Hogue use of a computer for job search, if approved by probation.

Judge Aaron Katz retains personal jurisdiction in this matter, and ordered Hogue back to San Diego’s North County Superior Courthouse for another review hearing on June 3, 2013.

Judge Katz is an idiot, there is no reason the guy should be banned from craigslist, and rubber stamping everything a HS educated probation officer wants is a dereliction of his duties as a judge. But we all know that judges at the state level today are really nothing more than second chair prosecutors, are not impartial and neutral decision makers= and will do whatever the prosecutor/probation officer/gov tells them to do.

My take is that this guy got off very lightly, and now the judge is trying to make up for that with some tight restrictions. Who will hire this joker? His name is in the news, and he's a registered sex offender. With that record, would anyone hire him to flip burgers?

Of course, there's the third wife. What was she thinking when she married him?

He did NO JAIL TIME AT ALL, hell yes he got off lightly, he could have been stuck in the Joint for a few years............I am always shocked at the disparity in the sentencing...you get poor people, mainly minorities, who get jail time for minor misdemeanor offenses-petty and minor for most, and then you get "professionals" who are convicted of FELONY offenses, usually non minorities, and this one was even a more serious felony (they are all serious) because it was a sex felony, and NO jail time.

The system is very broken, and the reason is the judges, they are appointed and it is not based on merit or scholarship. And they treat people different based on status.

Maybe I'm with you. A felony is supposed to represent a serious crime against society. So, why do felons get probation or suspended sentences? A serious crime calls for serious punishment, and probation doesn't make it.

In this case, he's out there and has some contact with his daughters and his wife's daughter. Is this stupid judge having second (or third or fourth or . . .) thoughts? That's my take.
