A 41-year-old teacher has quit his job and left his wife and children to move in with an 18-year-old former student, leaving the central California town of Modesto in a tizzy.
As one could guess, Jordan Powers's mother does not approve of the relationship and has taken to Facebook to voice her displeasure with her daughter and James Hooker. Police are investigating to determine if there was any illegal activity before Powers turned 18 in September. Both maintain that they didn't have sex until she was legal. Powers was once a student in Hooker's business class.
The former teacher told the Associated Press, "In making our choice, we've hurt a lot of people. We keep asking ourselves. 'Do we make everyone else happy or do we follow our hearts?'"
