Former Enochs High School student Jordan Powers, 18, and James Hooker, 41, a teacher who recently resigned from the school, talk about their relationship on March 27.

A Modesto, Calif., teen student who made national news when she and her high school teacher moved in together said Saturday she broke off their relationship after he was arrested on a charge of earlier abusing another student.

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, when Hooker was teaching at Modesto’s Davis High School. Police were already investigating whether there was a criminal case involving Hooker’s relationship with Powers when the allegation of the 1998 incident emerged.

After being booked Friday on one count of oral copulation with a minor, Hooker made a brief court appearance where a judge entered a not guilty plea on his behalf. Hooker was released from the Stanislaus County Jail after posting $50,000 bail, the Modesto Bee reported.

Powers and Hooker moved in together in February, with Powers dropping out of school and Hooker quitting his teaching job there and leaving his wife and three children.

The two appeared on national talk shows and in interviews, and maintained they didn't have a sexual relationship until she turned 18. But police are still investigating whether there was inappropriate contact before that.

Jordan Powers’ mother, Tammie Powers, said that after Hooker was arrested, she helped her daughter move out of the small apartment the two shared.

The mother and daughter have left for an undisclosed location out of the area, The Modesto Bee reported.

"She is safe, and I'm glad of that, and I'm elated that he's in custody," Tammie Powers told the newspaper.
