Teacher Pleads No Contest

James Hooker Mug shot

Today, jury selection was set to take place in a case involving former Enochs High School teacher James Hooker, who resigned from his job last year, and left his family after becoming romantically involved with one of his students.

A plea agreement of no contest was reached and charges of oral copulation with a person under the age of 18 reduced to a misdemeanor. The charge came about after Hooker was accused of having relations with an underage student while he was a teacher at Davis High School in 1998.

Officials began investigating Hooker after the mother of one of Hooker's students, Jordan Powers, accused Hooker of having a relationship with her daughter. During that investigation the Davis High student came forward. Hooker will have to register as a sex offender and is expected to be sentenced to four years of probation.

On July 10, 2013, Turlock Police Detectives conducted a compliance check on two local businesses offering massage services. Detectives were accompanied by agents from the Employment Development Department, Department of Labor Standards Enforcement, as well as the Turlock Fire Marshal and Building Inspector.

The operation was conducted to ensure the businesses were complying with all state laws and local ordinances that address the safety of patrons and employees. The Police Department had also received information that the businesses were involved in activities related to prostitution.

After complete inspections and interviews with employees, owners and clients, a total of five citations were issued between the two businesses. Violations included: failing to keep records of treatments, employing unlicensed masseuses, as well as various fire and building codes. The investigation into vice activity is on-going.

The Turlock Police Department is dedicated to the safety of all citizens and plans more of these types of operations in the future.

The Turlock Police Department is an active participant in the Crime Stoppers Program. Callers can leave an anonymous tip by calling Crime Stoppers at (209) 521-4636 and may be eligible for a cash reward.
