The mother of an 18-year-old high school student who ran off with one of her teachers, confronted the pair on national television this week.

Tammie Powers had waged a Facebook campaign since her daughter moved out of the family’s home earlier this month and into a Modesto apartment with 41-year-old James Hooker.

Tuesday she finally confronted the controversial couple on the Dr. Phil show. She told Hooker that he had “no moral compass” and that he had “brainwashed” her daughter.

“I think you are arrogant,”  Powers said. “I think you are self-serving. I think you are selfish. I think you are ruining my child with this.”

Powers questioned the legality of Hooker’s relationship with her daughter. She said the couple frequently exchanged text messages before Jordan Powers turned 18.

The couple said they were all messages within the sphere of a student-teacher relationship and that things did not get sexual until after Jordan Powers turned 18.

Hooker quit his teaching job at Enochs High School and left his wife and children to live with Jordan Powers.

One of his daughters was a classmate of Powers’ at the school.
