Oklahoma cheerleader coach who had sex with student 300 times was ‘manipulative and controlling’: cops
A former Oklahoma cheerleading coach was allegedly “manipulative and controlling” and forced a sophomore to have sex with her several times a week for about five years, according to a probable cause affidavit.
Jennifer Hawkins, 45, was a part-time employee in Moore Public School District during the alleged relationship with the victim and has since been fired, a district spokesperson told Fox News Digital in an emailed statement.
The victim was a sophomore when the alleged relationship started in September 2017 and has since graduated.
On Jan. 27, the victim sent a letter to district officials from a rehab center in California detailing the allegations against Hawkins, according to the affidavit reviewed by Fox News Digital.

When authorities confronted Hawkins, she initially denied the allegations but “then admitted she made a mistake and began crying and admitted to having been in a sexual relationship” with the student, the affidavit says.
When asked how many times she had sex with the alleged victim, “She repeatedly stated, ‘No clue,’ indicating numerous times,” according to the affidavit.
The victim allegedly told police in a separate interview that he had sex with her over 300 times at her house, where they allegedly went during lunch.
The victim briefly dated Hawkins’ daughter, which is how he and the now-fired high school teacher met, according to the affidavit.
