It seems 18-year-old Jordan Powers has decided her former teacher/boyfriend has no class after all. 

As the LA Times points out today, Powers dumped 41-year-old James Hooker after he was arrested last week on suspicion of sexually assaulting a minor over a decade ago.

Powers tells the press that her romantic relationship with Hooker is officially over -- she moved out of their shared apartment after he was hauled off to jail on Friday.

"He called me from jail and, yes, I told him that we're done," Powers told ABC News on Saturday morning. "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."

Hooker was arrested on Friday after police discovered that the high school teacher had allegedly sexually abused a 17-year-old girl in 1998 when he was teaching at Davis High School in Modesto.

Police made the discovery as they investigated Hooker's curious relationship with Powers, who had dropped out of high school and moved in with Hooker, who had ditched his wife and kids for Powers, in February.

Although they had met when Powers was a freshman at Enochs High School, the couple swear they never acted on their love for each other until she turned 18. But Powers' mother went to police anyway, explaining that she found a series of text exchanges that proves Hooker had been preying on her daughter long before she was of legal age.

So it probably came as no surprise to Powers' mother when police said they had evidence to prove he had an inappropriate relationship with a minor in 1999.

"He told me that he met her online and 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 told ABC. "He was freaked out so he left and went home. He said nothing else happened, but all of that was a lie."

There are some lessons you just can't learn in school.

genders. And as unfounded. The idea of a human being as a human being is not a new one.

Yet in America, you enslave your children like Black people, and justify judging with very flawed judgment by making them less. Less than human.

Leave them alone. Every human being on this plan

Also, sexual freedom and liberation is about as full of stereotyping and age-ism as discrimination against differing sexual orientations and ethnicities/

Sadly, the polarized case - making student-teacher relationships illegal at 18+ ( a campaign Miss Powers is undertaking nationwide) is ridiculous. Anecdotal argumentation does not stand as proof for inherency.

41 years old and he didn't know that she was still attached to her mother by the umbilical cord, it was like stealing a baby from the crib, He should've waited, maybe 2 more years, give her space grow older  and be more mature in her love life, and lets be real, at the age of 18 all girls and boys want to be free and be 21 so they can do what ever the hell they want to do..... except sex because we all know that we can not wait to be legal to do the BAM BAM BARABIN BARABAM THANK YOU MOM...   and for that what's that difference between a 18 and 41, sex is sex......... lets try to be a little less hypocrite here, who knows what you do when you turn the lights off............ If James is found guilty for touching a 17 years old girl, he should stay in jail, and the same goes if you are 18 and the other person is 17.

Yes, I thinks it's disgusting for him to have relations w young girls... However..Jordan is almost an adult here. She made a stupid decision, but she needs to own up to responsibility and understand that she too, destroyed a family. Sure, he has a cold heart, but so does she. Yes, we all make mistakes, but of this girl is old enough to drive and vote, then this girl was old enough to know that she shouldn't be messing with a married man. HE is definately at fault... But so is she.

It seems Jordan Power's doesn't think. She recognizes that Hooker is a selfish pig now but she doesn't seem to realize that she was pretty selfish herself to begin a relationship with a married man. She helped wreck a family and she should have left him alone.

Exactly I agree which is why it's hard for me to feel sorry for her because she told GMA that she threw away her senior year, ended friendships and stuff like that when she cause him abandon his family and quit his job just to be with her so it's hard for me to feel sorry for her because the man lost his job and his family over her, sure he was wrong but she has to realize she was wrong too!

Thank goodness, this young woman realized that her good judgment was clouded by emotionand not the best way to make critical decision.  Time heals all wounds.
