Skip to comments.California Teacher Resigns After Leaving Family for Student
Posted on 03/01/2012 1:46:31 PM PST by rightwingintelligentsia
Modesto police are investigating if there's a criminal case against a former high school teacher who resigned his job to move into an apartment with an 18-year old girl he met while teaching.
James Hooker, 41, was placed on administrative leave Feb. 3 by Modesto City Schools and resigned less than three weeks later, according to a report at the Modesto Bee.

If the student was male, the left-wingers would be calling him a “hero” and he’d probably get a promotion in his school.
I remember when we used to look up to teachers.
Sometimes real life trumps fiction, LOL.
I’m terrible with faces but ... anyone else think they kinda look alike? Like I said I could be way off.
Emotionally, they are equals.
You have got to be kidding.
He left his kids. Are you happy for them too?
Of course the guy dumped his wife and kids.
No problem, right?
I mean it's California after all.
So if she marries him, she becomes a Hooker.
I’m happily married to a wonderful woman 21 years younger than me. I don’t remember ever having to get the opinion - let alone the permission of anybody except her. I know for a fact that some of her relatives didn’t approve... So I don’t interact with them much. Fortunately, her mother and I are pretty good friends... and about the same age.
I 100% don't agree with them. But "freedom" does not always guarantee you will agree with what people do with that freedom.
In other words, it's none of my business.
We had a case like this here in Pennsylvania years ago. A teacher divorced his wife and took his 13 year old student as his common law wife.
Some pinhead judge in Erie County ruled it was a valid common law marriage and ordered the girl’s family to turn her over to him!
I don’t approve of it anymore than anyone else, but if the girl is 18 and of legal age, and the guy is 41, it is questionable if any crime has been committed.
If the 41 year old were female and the 18 year old were male, this thread would already been inundated with “lucky dude!” and “where were these teachers when I was in school”, etc.
It’s okay for billionaires.
The news story says she is now a senior, but he has known her since she was a freshman.
I guarantee he got at her *before* she was 18.
NOT GUILTY !!!!!
Y’all are welcome to personally condemn him for leaving his wife and kids.
But it’s not the government’s role to keep adults from shacking up.
And there is nothing perverted about a man being attracted to a sexually mature young woman.
“I mean it’s California after all.”
There are many good conservatives from CA. One of them runs this website. Another became President. His library is here.
Another is me. Without trying to speak for all the others, STFU about CA when making general statements about this kind of degeneracy. You’ve had some degenerates in your neck of the woods, too, wherever it is. I’ll guarantee it.
As in "Hooker's Brigade"--the campfollowing whores of the Civil War.
Do you suppose, just maybe, that this gentleman’s flame for the adult woman was kindled before she attained the age of majority? Is it OK for middle aged teachers to be dorking young girls as long as they later live together?
Sorry if you can’t face reality, mate.
Cali is a lost cause.
The swarm of illegals that came in post-Reagan killed it.
Look at your state-wide elected officials.
If you want to have any positive influence in the USA you’re going to have to move on.
My wife’s brother did the same thing. He invited us to his wedding. I told him I would not be part of his stupidity.
If you wish to send the happy couple a wedding gift, the bride is registered at Toys-R-Us.
NOW they are. I”m sure NOTHING happened until the second she turned 18, right?
If you believe that, I have a bridge in Brooklyn you might be interested in. I’ll even let it go for pennies on the dollar.
“Sorry if you cant face reality, mate.”
Face it every day, “mate.”
We got two kinds of Californians.
We got the ones who live here and might die here trying to make it what it was.
Then we got your chickenshit, walk away from a fight types. I ain’t the second type. And my life would really suck if I knew I was. Oh. And Breitbart was from here, too.
It is the governments role to keep teachers from having sex with their students, not matter their age. The man is a dirty old man. Any 41 year old male that thinks it’s okay to have sex with an 18 year is disgusting.
Post of the day! ;)
Seriously, what kind of family would accept a son-in-law like that? Maybe when she gets some miles on her (and a few kids), he’ll trade her in for a new model too.
And for the reading challenged in this forum—if you believe that she was of legal age when they hooked up, I want some of what you’re smoking.
Just because they’re consenting adults doesn’t make it any more morally acceptable.
For the record, I was a lot better looking than that at 18, and I wasn’t boinking any of my teachers either ;) I waited a few years and got me a good looking military man.
He has the same smirk as Jerry Sandusky.
“If the student was male, the left-wingers would be calling him a hero and hed probably get a promotion in his school.”
If the student were a guy and the teacher a woman, some people on this very site would be saying the same thing.
Quite a future ahead of them...
A match made . . . in . . . somewhere . . .
Well, as long as she’s “super cute”, I guess it’s OK regardless.
“Were you in a position of authority over her?”
You’re right, but that was de-criminalized when one of our former presidents molested an intern with a cigar. He was the head of our armed forces (where that would have cost him his job), but it was broomed under the carpet (and twisted into a “private matter”, though it came out in a sexual harassment lawsuit that cost him $890K to settle and cost him his law license for 5 years).
So is Jim Robinson. :)
And for movie directors and producers.
Wow! The first three comments were removed! Would this be a record?
Good for you.
I'm 26 and my GF is 44. We lived next door to each other and worked out together at the same gym every day-she was my lifting partner and was friends for a long time before becoming BF/GF. I was in 2 other relationships with women my age and this just happened.
14 months later still going strong.
You’re like the 60 year old steel worker in my hometown of Cleveland who keeps telling his neighbors “that mill (the one that’s been closed since 82) is gonna open up one of these days and I’ll be back to makin’ some real money”.
It may have been because some posters posted an image from a source (such as Getty) that is not permitted here due to copyright restrictions.
“Youre like the 60 year old steel worker in my hometown of Cleveland who keeps telling his neighbors that mill (the one thats been closed since 82) is gonna open up one of these days and Ill be back to makin some real money.”
No. That’s delusion. I’m more like the kind that says “oh, you want to take my land and change America? Come on over here and try to take it. But you don’t see the difference, do you “mate.”
