MODESTO, Calif. (AP) — A Northern California teen who made national news when she and her high school teacher moved in together says she has broken off the relationship following allegations that he sexually abused another student.

Eighteen-year-old Jordan Powers told ABC News ( ) that when her now former boyfriend, Christopher Hooker, called her from jail she told him, "We're done."

The 41-year-old Hooker was arrested Friday on suspicion of sexually abusing a different student more than a decade ago.

After being booked on one count of oral copulation with a minor, he made a brief court appearance where a judge entered a not guilty plea on his behalf.

Powers and Hooker moved in together in February, with Powers dropping out of James Enochs High School in Modesto, while Hooker quit his teaching job at the school and left his wife and three children.
