James Hooker, Modesto Teacher Who Ditched Wife and Kids for Student, Should Lose His Pension, Lawmaker Says

A playground? Really?
A few weeks ago we told readers the Jerry Springer-like story about James Hooker, the 41-year-old Modesto high school teacher who dumped his wife and kids to move in with one of his students. Of course, the not-so-young love has drawn ire from readers, and now lawmakers, too.

Assemblywoman Kristin Olsen (R-Modesto) was appalled to learn that Hooker was dating his former student, 18-year-old Jordan Powers, who is a senior at Enochs High School -- so much so that she's hoping to legislate the two out of love. Olsen has introduced a bill that would essentially put an end to these bizarre student-teacher relationships. 

"My bill would say it doesn't matter how old you are, if you are a student at a high school and a teacher initiates a relationship with you, that's highly inappropriate, highly unethical, should be a felony conviction, and you should lose your public pension for that type of behavior," Olsen tells KGO.

... and boyfriend
The bill, AB 1861, will be introduced next week, and would require each school to have its own review board in conjunction with a police investigation when it becomes known that a teacher is teaching his or her student a little more than what's on the curriculum. The California Teachers Association has refused to comment on the bill until it's introduced.

On March 1, the news broke that Hooker (that name!) quit his job and announced he would be moving in with Powers, who also has big plans to drop out of school. The high school sweethearts swear they never touched one another until Powers turned 18, and that's when Hooker decided to pursue his now-legal love, and leave his wife and kids.

Naturally, Powers' mother isn't happy about this relationship, and has told police she believes Hooker was preying on her daughter when she was still a minor -- and she has a string of text messages to prove it.

Despite the public disapproval of this relationship, Hooker, who is now being investigated by Modesto police, has told news reporters that there's nothing wrong with what he's done, and he's not worried about what police might find. 

Clearly, he's blinded by love.

Why all this 'age-ism' about her being 18? If people can die in a war at 18, why are you calling her a 'slut and a bimbo' essentially. You're not using the words, but you're heavily implying she's just a sex object, and frankly that says MORE ABOUT YOU BEING PREJUDICE than anything else here. You are being AGEIST and SEXIST in implying that an 18 year old girl cannot love and make an honest decision about who she wants to be with. Nice setting back women another thirty years, cunt.

I don't plan on judging these two's relationship considering age difference. The part that disgusts me and pisses me off is how this guy just threw away his responsibility as a husband and father of 3 girls (I think). Marriage isn't something to do lightly. You're fukin swearing to god that you'll make your significant other happy and love them for the rest of your lives. From that point on you carry that responsibility till either the person dies or get a divorce(which is running away from the responsibility). I don't fukin care how much of a bitch the wife was, if you fukin made a vow then live up to your words if you're a man. Fukin pedophile lowlife. If you have sex and have babies, from that point on you carry the responsibility to take care of those kids till they're old enough to go off on their own. Having kids and making a vow to your love isn't something to be taken that lightly, you're not in just a little relationship where you can break up. If you're a grown man then fuckin act like one. You can't just say, "I'm leaving to live with my new love" NO YOU PEDOPHILE. Live up to your word if even want a drop of respect. Because of what you did your wife and 3 kids are going to have to go through misery, and I'm sure you don't plan on doing anything to take responsibility for that you low life.

Should i mention i was never married 2 my x! My gradson was not of my blood not that that maters! I hav 1 child consived in marrage! My wife died like u said marrage is till death do u part!

My gmother was 17 when she married my g father he was 37 they were married 67 years! If it was a boy 18 & a woman 40+ is that a pedofile? Take a vote! I beilve they call that woman a cougar! My values my b old fashioned mayb james broke some vowes like u say ok he did! But i dont think he abandoned his family! I dont know much about love this is my 1st lov but it was love at first sight! Ive heard of people who knew each other 4 years all of a suden boom lov! Things will work out how things work out! U dont hear all this about all the other divorcd people out there & all that & if age isnt the isue then that is kinda redundant what u say about bing a pedofile & makes u look prety stupid 4 sayin it! Abandonment? Seams 2 me everybody knows where they live & i doubt they would slam the door in a family members face! Cant beileve people r so involved in this, we went through r share of guff from people still get some now but we r very much happy very much in luv & very much dont give a darn what people think! Leave them alone find some other crusade & later if it all goes bad then u all can stand in line & say we told u so ! In the mean time from me & all the other cuples persicuted by the narrow minded people who think there way is it & hav nothing beter 2 do then make things like this national news my middle finger is a full mast 2 u!

I don't understand why you're angry with my post. I understand your position since you stuck with your wife till death. That's very respectable. I don't understand what you mean by your were never married to your ex? How does that have anything to do here? The point is HE was married and had 3 kids, getting married and having a baby automatically gives you responsibilities, you have to stay by their side and watch/help them grow up till they can live on their own. He threw those responsibilities away. How do you know he didn't abandon them? You say "things will work out how things will work out," but that's just a naive excuse to people that do whatever they want to do. Would you say the same thing if you accidentally ran someone over? Can you say that to the relatives of the one you killed? I don't think so. Maybe I shouldn't have said pedophile, I apologize for that. But you gotta understand that the public has a thing called common sense or a way of thinking. Publicly people would think of this as a pedophile, so if you don't care then don't say anything about it cuz obviously you seem to care. He got married, he made a vow, he had 3 kids, from that point on he has responsibilities he has to carry, giving a life to another isn't something that easy to do and take care of. He didn't abandon them? Well he obviously chose to take his new "love" over his "love" for his kids and rather make them go through misery for the rest of their lives. From this point on those kids will probably be treated differently and possibly be traumatized from this incident and it will most likely affect the rest of their lives. Can he take responsibility for that? I don't want to hear that "things will work out how things will work out," that's just a naive and immature response everyone makes when they just want to run away from the responsibility they carry. Will you say that in his position if one of his kids commit suicide from bullying? Cuz that's possible. Anything's possible if anything will work out how things work out. So don't come here with those immature selfish excuses. Live up to your words if you make a vow and if you break them then don't expect any respect or acceptance from your surroundings, those are the consequences and the price you pay for selfish actions like this. Let it be love or whatever ya'll call it, fine with me, but remember that the public will have their own opinions and he'll just have to live with it.

Lol you're hilarious. Lowering your level to this guys level? Your just trying to talk like you know what he's saying but you're replies don't even make sense. You don't even understand what he's talking about. Go get a life public? If you don't want your little "love" or so to be disturbed and denied by the public then you should just shut up. You're only embarrassing yourself putting immature replies on everybody's post. This guy at least shows you some respect while you're just shouting out everything you think is right.

How do you know more than me? Do you know this guy? Personally? Obviously looking at our conversation you're being very emotional and out of control cuz you apparently can't understand what I'm trying to say, but instead be narrow minded and just yell out your own opinion all the way. If you're family is doing fine after going through something similar then I'm happy for you, that's great. But was your father a school teacher that ran off with their student he fell in "love" with? You think your situation may be similar to this and that you understand Hooker's point of view, well similar doesn't mean the exact same. I'm sure what your father felt and Hooker felt at the time were not exactly the same. They're two different people. This guy quit his job and ditched his family to move in with his student. What part of this are you trying to tell the public to respect? Nothing about a man that ditched their family is respectable. It's just a disgrace. Think about it, what would you think if your teacher left his family and moved in with their student saying they're in love? Would you support his saying "that's honorable!"? Cuz his family has to go through a lot of misery. The wife will be known as the one that was thrown away for a 18 year old. The kids will be bullied saying "Your dad left you for a 18 year old." Would you respect a guy that puts their blood family into this kinda misery? African American's fought for their rights because they were same human beings as us and were treated differently. This guy left his family and you guys are saying you're standing up to your beliefs? Don't give me that bullshit you're just standing up so you can get your selfishness justified. So blacks won their rights. If you guys win your rights then you're saying you don't mind guys leaving families for anybody cuz they're "in love"? Sure fighting for your love is great, I agree. But you can't just say "I'm in love!" and go off with anyone you want to and leave what you have behind, especially if it's something big as a family. Why? Because that family is what you created with the person you were so called "in love." with. If being "in love" is a excuse to do anything you want with anyone you want then you're saying husbands can leave wives/children saying they're "in love" with someone else and vice versa. Is that a belief you'll fight for?

This is getting annoying. Look your situation is different. It doesn't matter about facts of the family. It's not like he's going to speak to the public of how terrible his wife was and how annoying his kids were. It's called respect and responsibility. And if you throw them away just like that then you don't deserve the respect. At the same time you'll hear a lot of public opinions and that's just something he's going to have to live with as the consequences. Being a man isn't that simple. You have a lot of responsibilities and things to carry with you for your life. That's why when marrying someone you should be prepared for a lot of shit. This guy didn't want to so he threw them away. What part of this is respectable? Obviously people will say shit about him and he just has to live with it. Stop putting yourself in the same situation. It's not like you know more than I do about this man. This is public opinion not personal interest, or compare and contrast with the other person. Cuz I would never do something life this. As a man he's a low life. Also try to calm down a bit or something cuz what you're saying doesn't really make much sense and your grammar level doesn't help much either.

I'd like to see what you'll say when this Hooker guy leaves this girl and moves in with another girl saying he's "in love" again. Wouldn't be talking so big would you. We're not haters, we're being realistic. While you're being emotionally out of control. What I can't stand are people that deny public saying you know what you're saying but all you are is a selfish idiot that just wants to get his selfishness justified by going rampage on everybody. I don't know how old you are but on here you sound like a 10 year old that's in puppy love.

THis is illegal in most states. Even in the South, where I live, if a TEACHER begins a relationship with a student in K-12 it is a serious breach if trust. In my state, what he did is a felony. Even if she is now currently 18. She was his HIGH SCHOOL STUDENT. Not an 18 year old young woman he met somewhere that he was not in a position of authority over her. I really wonder about the people here that think this behavior is okay. This child was vulnerable and reasonable people who understand what he did violated the trust that the administration and her parents placed in him.

I personally think this is wrong, but seriously, is it affecting me? NO....If he is a pedophile sooner or later we will know, and if he is not let them live their life. I am just curious why is it bad this relationship but no one seems to care or remember when Celine Dion met his manager (now husband) she was only 12 or 13 and he was like 40 and when she reached the majority of age they became a couple......SUPPOSEDLY WHEN SHE BECAME AN ADULT!! AND NO ONE HAS EVER BROUGHT THAT UP, EVERYONE THOUGHT IT WAS CUTE.... Dang, people these days seems to have short memory!!!

 A full grown woman? Seriously? An adult, yes, but she is still a teenager (hence eight-TEEN) not a woman my friend. And furthermore, what the hell is there to be jealous of? A balding creep? No thanks. This guy took advantage of his position and of this young girl. There were hundreds of messages from him before she turned 18...regardless of whether or not their relationship was sexual (which it's highly unlikely that it wasn't) this was completely inappropriate teacher behavior. He was there to educate, not look for his next girlfriend.

All of you are clearly upset by putting yourself in the parent's shoes, but what if you took the time to look through the eyes of a girl in love.  What if all you wanted was to be happy and he just happened to be the guy that made you happy?  Would you be brave enough, like them, to publicly announce that your happiness is more important than what the rest of America thinks of you?

"18 is legal consent and if it doesn't bother you then you ultimately don't care. But can't you see how f***ed up that is? What if it were your 18 year old dating a 41 year old teacher? "

ok, I get that, and I agree actually.  But what if he was a 41 year old movie star, rock star?  What if he was the CEO of ButtLoadsofMoney.com, a Jerry Seinfeld, or someone with a ton of money.  

Question: same reaction?  

Because this guy is not the first 40 something to trade in the wife for an inappropriately younger model... but when the guy is LOADED, folks often will slide in "ok, but look how smart SHE is..."  as if that negates the rest of the objections.  I'm genuinely curious how people feel.  Over to YOU:

Look, we all know this relationship won't last, and it's not quite "normal", but if he weren't a teacher this would not even be an issue. I know of couple with about same age difference whom have been together for three years now, but fortunately he's not a teacher–so no one says anything about it. Also, Hooker is not a pedophile. Research the meaning the word before you start throwing it around. It was wrong for this man to leave his wife and kids like he did, and his girlfriend will soon realize she made a mistake, but stop demonizing the man as if he committed mass murder. This not the worst thing that can happen to a young woman. All the social criticism is making it worse.

Here is another reason why a single parent home where there is no dad is detremental. There is no way that that could happen if the dad is around.  No 41 year old man would have the guts to show up at the doorstep of a 17, 18 year old child if her father is living at her house.  This piece of dirt doesn't care what the mother says because it is only talk.  Men respond to who can kick who's butt and a woman is not kicking any man's butt, a father has no problem engaging in hand to hand combat when it comes to his daughter.

The daughter is obviously looking for a father figure, a way to prove to her mom that she too is a woman, a way to get out of the house, and just generally being a rebellious teen.  This guy recognized that and has taken advantage of this little girl, plain and simple.  Any man can do it, but there is a statute of limitations to everything in life. 

How embarrassing for his kids growing up.  Think of what they will have to endure in school and life.  This is a man that is so incredibly selfish and low down that there is no word for it.  He is just as bad as a child molestor.

In many cultures disparity of age of the marital partners is no big thing. Why to we obsess about what other adults consentually do?

J. Brozovic
J. Brozovic

In many cultures, specially Middle-Eastern or Asian countries, disparity between marital partners is not a big deal because it is always about an older man deciding to marry a much younger woman, a girl, in many cases. And because the young woman has little freedom and not much to say about the decision.  This was also the case with Mormon polygamy in this country, when it was practiced - old men marrying young girls with little concern for the girl's wishes.

I don't think you can name one culture in which older women marrying much younger men, or teenage boys, is seen as acceptable. Even in the most tolerant countries, that is frowned upon.  Good news is that, unlike men, most women mature as they get older and are rarely interested in having sex with or marrying teenagers or even someone half their age.

If you did your homework George, you would find out that Jordan's father passed away in 2001. There are many young women being raised in single parent households who do not end up with older men. This is a situation where the former teacher took advantage of his position, and moved in on a student.

I have a daughter in college who was hit on by an older guy, and she found his advances to be creepy, and she told me about it. I told her how she could politely, and firmly, rebuff his overtures. As a single mother I've always been very protective of my daughter, and I am not afraid to stand up for what is right. The guy that my daughter is dating knows that all hell will break loose if he mistreats her in any way, shape, or form. This mama bear knows how to kick some butt if the situation calls for it.

James Hooker is only one sick manipulative pedophile, who found the opportunity of his life time to molest a youngster. But, don't forget Jordan was drawn to him like a magnet. In Dr Phil, when Tammie blamed Jordan, you could see Jordan was very upset and Hooker took the chance to pet Jordan ("She is my girlfriend") by blaming Tammie. Hooker works to alienate Jordan from Tammie or anyone who cares for her. But Jordan also carve a father figure who loves and support her. Therefore, Tammie should stop blamng Jordan but support her unconditionally despite her disapproval of the relationship. This is an isolated case, which makes a lot of people angry. However, legislation would not stop pedophile but likely causing instead of solving problems. It will cause a lot of waste on taxpayer dollars.

When I was 40 an 18 year girl asked me to marry her, which i did. Our marriege lasted over three years, after we divorced, because we were traveling all the time in different areas. Our divorce was mutual. You can not have a longdistance relationship very long.

When I was in my sixties I had an affair with 19 year old young lady, she came after me and I had not much choice. She was stalking me until I gave in and slept with her. Of course I have adored her. Now most people can not understand it.

Having had studied astrology and after I compared our charts, it was obvious.Now, the teacher and student love could be easily explained by a competent astrologer. Unfortunatly, people are too stupid to look into the facts. Brainwashed opinions, prejudice,etc... worsens the opinions. I would like to know, how many fellow students she had sex withbefore the teacher came along. The mother is a moron, brainwashed by society of what is right/wrong. She should talk with her mother and let her know. Ask if she want to brake up her happyrelationship, because she can not comprehend it?

Would you respect this man? That being "in love" is a excuse you can use to just leave your family and live with a 18 year old? I don't think so. Once you're married you have responsibilities, especially if you have 3 kids. You can't just throw them away. If there's not need to show commitment to marriage and childbearing then whats the point of marriage and having kids? I don't care about age difference. But I heavily despise people that don't keep their word or aren't responsible for what they do. Now his guys kids will live in misery, probably be bullied, and the mother could live in despair as the one that was left for a 18 year old. You didn't mention it but if you slept with those girls that are much younger than you while you had a wife waiting at home then you're in the same category as this shameless Hooker guy. If you didn't have a wife then I don't see any point in you arguing for Hooker. Ya'll aren't in the same position.

" When I was in my sixties I had an affair with 19 year old young lady, she came after me and I had not much choice. She was stalking me until I gave in and slept with her..."

And then you woke up... just like that time when you dreamed of being married to the 18 year-old.

Keep dreaming, old timer.

First this:  "the teacher and student love could be easily explained by a competent astrologer."  

You do realize the closest stars are more than 20 trillion miles from earth, yes?   yet you believe they have some bearing on your life, some magic spell or force travels all that distance, just to make you a lucky person on Tuesdays or something?  what would distinguish a "competent" follower of this complete nonsense from an incompetent one?  I expect a man past the age of 60 should be competent enough to detect such BS, but here you are... oh well... 

Secondly:  age of consent is 18.  This means we as a society agree that a girl is a woman at that age, capable of making choices that the rest of us need to butt out of, at least legally speaking.  She is entitled to make this choice regardless of how anyone else fees about it, as were the young women that had relationships with Manwithmagicwand...

(and if you actually dated a 19 yr old at age 60, either you've got a ton of money, or you do have a magic "wand" indeed...)Personally, I wouldn't want my daughter to make such a choice, and I'd tell her where I think it's going to end up (pretty much where your's did), what the limitations are, and give her my thoughts on the matter.... but the final choice is hers, disapprove as I may.

When you were in your 60's you had an affair with a 19 year old? And you have the courage to admit that. You sound like a old, depraved codger who needs some serious counseling. If you can relate emotionally to a 19 year old then you have serious psychological issues. But mostly you just sound like a pedophile. Did you ever question why a 19 year girl would ever be attracted to an such an old guy? It makes me sick to even think about that poor girl having sex with someone your age. I'm sure she came to her sense very quickly, but most likely needed years of therapy to get the experience out of her head.

Also, dating 18-year-olds is pretty damn far from pedophilia. Creepy: yes.  Should be illegal: no. 

It is the teacher-student aspect of this that people should be outraged about, not the age.
