Teacher student dating ethics
The school board has fired him from the teaching job he held for 24 years, and many people in the picturesque little town are shocked to the bone.
“Just yesterday we discovered we both liked only the brown Necco wafers and threw away the rest when we were kids.” For his part, says Hone, “I love Kimberly. I doubted my ability to perform with her, but sex is better now than it’s ever been.” In Hone’s opinion, his critics are a pack of meddlers. This is our personal lives.” As for the notion that he violated the trust placed in him as a teacher, he insists, “I didn’t violate any ethics. That I’m going to marry all of their daughters or something?Expecting a baby this month, Kimberly maintains somewhat strained relations with her mother, Rosemary, 39, a sales representative for Xerox, and her father, Stephen, 43, who works in the metals industry.Hone was released from jail in June, after serving a three-month sentence for violating a court order that he stay away from the girl.“Since when do I need the permission of the superintendent or the school committee before I marry? What a laugh.” By the Hones’ account, their friendship blossomed into love only in 1987, when Frederick was already divorced from Lana, his wife of 22 years, and Kimberly, then 16, was five years gone from his classroom.Frustrated by what she saw as her parents’ inability to understand her, Kimberly had resumed pouring out her troubles to Hone over the phone, while attending ninth grade at a private school in Providence."I'd say (his addition to the list) was important to both us and the victim," said Assistant Chisago County Attorney Erin Stephens.
"I think it helped her that there would be accountability and someone was going to watch him." 5 EYEWITNESS NEWS compiled all of the Minnesota Board of Teaching stipulation agreements into a public database.
The two say they met sporadically during the next two years, but only as friends.
“We were probably falling in love when I was in 10th grade, but we didn’t perceive it as love,” she says.
A Chisago County judge on Monday placed former high school teacher Jon Hughes on Minnesota's Predatory Offender Registry after a crime that took place nearly 30 years ago involving a student.
Hughes had no comment as he left the courthouse in Center City Monday.
“He was my best friend, but then, love is when a friendship lights on fire.” Before the conflagration, Kimberly had boyfriends closer to her own age, and the newly divorced Hone was going out with women he had met through personal ads.
