Teacher dating ex student
The lawsuit, filed Wednesday, describes their relationship as "an occasional intimate relationship from 2004 to 2010." Addis, 26, grew jealous after he told her last year he was seeing someone else, and threatened to "manufacture details about an alleged improper relationship," the lawsuit said."I think his teaching license is in jeopardy," lawyer Timothy Kolman told The Associated Press."He's an excellent teacher, and I know that many of the students and many of the parents are distressed that they no longer have his teaching talents to rely on."According to the lawsuit, Schanne taught Addis in both her junior and senior years.
Addis allegedly told school officials the tutoring sessions included times when they were alone at her home, and that their relationship came to cross the line, through hugging, kissing and other physical contact.The department did not immediately return a call seeking clarification of how the two met. A judge entered a not guilty plea on his behalf, set his bail at $50,000 and assigned him a public defender, the Modesto Bee reported ( JV2).Hooker requested that his bail amount be reduced, and the judge set a hearing for Tuesday to consider the matter.Police said the investigation started after Hooker announced his relationship in February with Jordan Powers, whom he taught at Enochs High School in Modesto.At what point does it become acceptable for a student to date a teacher?It's obviously a no-no if the student is underage, but some colleges have banned student-teacher sex completely, even between consenting adults.
For years, the topic has fascinated filmmakers and viewers alike.
A former California teacher who made national headlines when he left his job and family to move in with an 18-year-old student was arrested Friday on suspicion of sexually abusing a different student more than a decade ago, police said.
Christopher Hooker, 41, was arrested at his home and booked in Stanislaus County Jail on one count of oral copulation with a minor.
Police said the case stems from a 1998 relationship he had with a 17-year-old student when he was a teacher at Davis High School in Modesto.
The girl was a student at a different school, police said.
In a statement, police said Hooker befriended the 17-year-old.
