James Hooker - The Honeymoon Ends For 41-Year-Old Teacher Who Left His Wife And Kids For 18-Year-Old Student


Modesto, California (The Weekly Vice) - James Hooker, the 41-year-old teacher who left his wife and kids to move in with an 18-year-old student has been jailed after an investigation revealed that he allegedly had sex with another student 14 years ago.

Hooker made national headlines last month when he quit his teaching job at a Modesto area school, left his family and moved in with former student, 18-year-old Jordan Powers. An investigation was launched, but charges were not filed after Hooker and Powers insisted that a sexual relationship did not develop between them while he was her teacher at Enochs High School.

During the course of the investigation, however, detectives reportedly found evidence that Hooker had sexually assaulted a 17-year-old student back in 1998 while he was a teacher at another Modesto area school.

Hooker was booked into jail and charged with oral copulation with a minor. A judge set his bail at $50,000 during his first court appearance on Friday.

After Hooker's arrest, Miss Powers reportedly broke off the relationship and has moved out of the apartment she shared with the former teacher.

"He called me from jail and yes, I told him that we're done," said Powers during an ABC interview. "I lost everything for this guy. I lost my senior year. I gave up all my friends at high school because they didn't agree with me."

The conversation between Hooker and Powers then turned to details about Hooker's alleged sexual assault.

"He told me that he met her online and he hung out with her just as friends and he went to her house and she came out of the bathroom naked and he only touched her boobs and her legs," said Powers. "He was freaked out so he left and went home. He said nothing else happened, but that was a lie."

Powers still maintains that nothing sexual happened between her and Hooker while she attended his class. Detectives, however, are continuing their investigation.
