Teacher arrested for sexual assault after accuser confronts her on YouTube
The former teacher resigned from her post as a school administration after accusations went viral on YouTube.
A high school administrator has been charged with sexual assault after a former student recorded a phone call where she confronted the school employee over alleged abuse. Video of the call went viral on YouTube.
Andrea Cardosa, 40, who was most recently employed by California’s Alhambra High School, was charged with “16 counts involving aggravated sexual assault and lewd acts on a child under the age of 14,” the Los Angeles Times reported.
In January, former student Jamie Carrillo, 28, tracked Cardosa down and recorded a phone conversation they had.
Carrillo uploaded the video to YouTube on Jan. 17 and emailed it to a principal in the Alhambra School District.
“Why did you do that? I was only 12 years old when I met you. You realize that you brainwashed me and manipulated me?” Carrillo told Cardosa. “Do you know that I am completely messed up, that I have so many issues because of you? … You ruined my life, you ruined my childhood.”
In an interview with KTLA, Carrillo claims Cardosa, who was also a coach, would kiss her in the locker room. Eventually Cardosa took Carrillo on out-of-town trips, where she would have sex with her.
Following the release of the video, the Alhambra Unified School District fired Cardosa and sent a letter to parents.
After Carrillo’s video went viral, another victim has come forward claiming that Cardosa abused her between 2009 and 2010.
Cardosa was arrested Monday night on a $5 million warrant. She is expected in court Thursday.
