Teacher who moved in with student back in court

Tuesday, May 15, 2012

The former Modesto teacher who left his wife and his job to move in with an 18-year-old student was back in court Monday.

41-year-old James Hooker arrived at the courthouse with 18-year-old Jordan Powers by his side. Hooker is charged with sexual assault in a case involving a different student 14 years ago.

A judge confiscated Hooker's passport after learning he had plans to move to Canada with Powers. The two have been off and on since going public with their relationship nearly three months ago.
