MODESTO, CA - The former Modesto teacher who created news by leaving his job and family to live with a former 18-year-old student, was ordered by a judge to hand over his passport because of a charge involving a 17 year old student.
James Hooker, 41, was in court early Tuesday on the charge of oral copulation of a minor. The alleged victim came forward after seeing Hooker in interviews flaunting his relationship with Jordan Powers.
The victim told police she began relations with Hooker in 1998, when she was a student at Modesto's Beyer High School. Hooker was at David High at the time.
