MODESTO—

James Hooker, the former Enochs High School teacher who made national headlines after moving in with an 18-year-old student, has been arrested for alleged sex abuse of a minor.

Modesto Police investigators say Hooker was in a romantic relationship with a different girl when she was 17. Hooker is believed to have developed a relationship with the girl in 1998, when he was a teacher at Davis High School in Modesto.

Hooker was arrested Friday on one count of oral copulation with a minor.

The original investigation against Hooker for his relationship with 18-year-old Jordan Powers is still open.
