Hooker was also required to admit in court to molesting the victim Michelle Miller.“Other children will now receive a measure of protection,” said Allred.She said in late February he was getting a divorce but that they had no plans to marry.

Jordan Powers said she now believes there were others.She was working to finish her classes through independent study and had been accepted to Modesto Junior College, hoping to become a nurse.

MODESTO– James Hooker must register as a sex offender, he’s on probation for the next 48 months and he has a 180 day jail sentence – but if he doesn’t violate his probation, he won’t have to serve any of that time. Hooker will now be be recognized as the predator he is,” said Gloria Allred, the attorney of the victim who brought the case against Hooker.
Those were the conditions of his plea agreement to reduce his sentence from a felony to a misdemeanor.
Hooker's arrest Friday had nothing to do with his involvement with Jordan Powers.
Police say they have developed evidence that he was involved with a 17-year-old girl in 1998 while a teacher at Davis High School in Modesto.He resigned his teaching position the same day and remains unemployed.
