MOORE, OKLAHOMA: An Oklahoma cheerleading coach who had been physically intimate with his 16-year-old daughter’s former boyfriend more than 300 times has been arrested, authorities say. Jenn Hawkins, 45, is believed to have had a five-year relationship with the teenager and was taken into police custody for second-degree rape and sexual assault on Wednesday March 8 after the incident came to light.
According to an affidavit obtained by Fox 25, investigators began investigating Moore’s public school cheer coach in January after the alleged victim, who is now 21, brought rape charges against her.

What did the victim say?
The victim told authorities that Hawkins first tricked him into having sex in 2017 when he was dating his daughter. He claims he had sex with the woman almost every day at her house during his lunch break throughout his sophomore and freshman year. Police say the victim had sex with the woman more than 300 times between 2017 and 2022.
According to court documents, the boy provided authorities with text messages the couple sent to each other. In a post, Hawkins became furious when she learned the victim was “watching” other women. Hawkins reportedly denied the allegations when asked by police, but later admitted to the relationship, they said.
What does the affidavit say?
“Jennifer initially denied having had sex with [him]“, states the affidavit. “Jennifer then admitted that she had made a mistake and started crying and admitted to having had sex with [the former student].” “Jennifer talked about [his] age when they became sexual [16 years of age] and how their relationship would seem strange or inappropriate to other people,” the filing continued.
According to the Moore Public Schools District, Hawkins was immediately relieved of her duties after the allegations came to light in January. “Once we were made aware of the situation, Hawkins was immediately fired from his job at Moore Public Schools,” a district spokesperson said. “The safety and security of MPS students and employees is our primary concern. MPS school officials will continue to assist law enforcement in their investigation of this matter.
