You all remember the story of former teacher and married man Christopher James Hooker, 41 who not only quit his job, but left his wife and kids to move in with former student Jordan Powers, 18. Well, at least according to police, Powers was NOT the first high school girl Hooker hooked up with and they arrested him for an inappropriate relationship he had with a 17-year-old girl back in 1998.
So what happened when Hooker called young lover Powers from jail? She told him it was over. Whatever happened to "stand by your man?" Now, Powers gets to try and go back to becoming a "normal" high school student (good luck getting a date to prom) and Hooker goes back to . . . well, it looks like he's going to jail.
Who says these things don't have story book endings anymore?
Jordan Powers, 18, told ABC News that when Christopher James Hooker, 41, called her from jail after his arrest Friday she told him, "We're done." During Saturday's interview with ABC, Powers said she had "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," said the former Enochs High School student.
Powers told ABC News that Hooker told her he met the other student, who was 17 in 1998, online.
“He hung out with her just as friends and then he went to her house and she came out of the bathroom naked and he only touched her boobs and her legs," Powers said. "He was freaked out so he left and went home. He said nothing else happened, but all of that was a lie." The teen said she believed the woman came forward now to help her see the truth about Hooker and rescue her from the relationship.
"My heart dropped. I felt betrayed. I just have a gut feeling there are other girls," Powers said, according to the ABC News interview. Police said the other teen was a 17-year-old student in 1998 at Modesto’s Davis High School, where Hooker was teaching at the time. Police were already investigating whether there was a criminal case involving Hooker’s relationship with Powers when the allegation of the 1998 incident emerged.
