Jennifer Jean Hawkins, 45, of Oklahoma City, Oklahoma, United States is accused of abusing a boy dating her daughter. The mother allegedly had sex with him more than 300 times between 2017 and 2022.
For around two decades, Hawkins worked for Moore Public Schools as a cheerleading coach. She was contracted with the district and was neither a teacher nor a full-time employee.
In August 2017, Hawkins allegedly put her hand on the penis of the boy, then 16, while he was watching a soccer game with her in the living room of her house in Oklahoma City. They then engaged in a sexual act for the first time, according to him.
At the time, Hawkins was still working for Moore Public Schools as a cheerleading coach and the boy was a sophomore at Southmoore High School in Moore, Oklahoma. He was also dating her teenage daughter.
During the victim’s sophomore and junior years at Southmoore High School, Hawkins would pick him up during lunch and have sex with her at her residence in Oklahoma City almost every day. Text messages showed how she got angry at him for observing other females on social media sites.
“I want you in my life,” Hawkins wrote in one message. “I just don’t want a romantic relationship.”
While in a rehabilitation program in California, USA, the victim sent a letter to Moore Public Schools staff on January 27, 2023, in which he disclosed his sexual relationship with Hawkins. On the same day, the district contacted the Oklahoma City Police Department, which immediately started an investigation.
When staff members interviewed Hawkins, she initially denied being in a sexual relationship with the victim but later admitted to it. She added that the victim lived with her and her family in Oklahoma City for the last couple of years until ties were severed in October 2022.
Moore Public Schools fired Hawkins. She was arrested and booked into the Cleveland County Detention Center in Norman, Oklahoma.
Hawkins was charged with one count of second-degree rape and one count of sexual battery. She was released after posting a $15,000 bond.
