Victim secretly tapes her former teacher admitting to sex abuse and posts it online

Published

on

Authorities in Riverside County, California, arrested a former school principal in connection with multiple counts related to sexual assault, less than a month after she was identified by one alleged victim in a phone confrontation posted online.

The Los Angeles Times reported that 40-year-old Andrea Michelle Cardosa is being sought on 16 counts of aggravated sexual assault and lewd acts on a child under the age of 14.

Cardosa resigned as vice principal of student services at Alhambra High School on Jan. 20, hours after a former student, 28-year-old Jamie Carrillo (pictured above), called her at school, secretly recorded the conversation and posted it on YouTube.

“I was only 12 years old when I met you,” Carrillo says at one point in the video. “Do you realize that you brainwashed me and you manipulated me and that what you did was wrong?”

“Yes. And I regret it,” Cardosa responds. “I only — I just wanted to help you.”

“How is having a sexual relationship with a 12-year-old student helping?” Carrillo asks.

The original video was reportedly seen more than 1 million times before being taken down, but duplicate videos have already been posted since. Carrillo said at a press conference on Monday that she planned to take legal action to ensure Cardoza left education.

KTLA-TV reported that prosecutors accused Cardoza of abusing Carrillo between 1997 and 2001. A second unidentified victim has also come forward, saying she was abused in 2009 or 2010, while attending high school in Perris, California.

The Times also reported that both Cardoza and Carrillo were interviewed by authorities when rumors suggested Cardoza was engaging in abusive behavior in 1999. At the time, she was a teacher, and Carrillo’s basketball coach.

“She told me that my family didn’t love me,” Carrillo was quoted as saying on Monday. “That nobody cared about me, that she was my only friend and the only person who cared about me.”

Watch Carrillo’s phone call to Cardoza, as posted online last month, below.

Heather Heyer’s mom says things have gotten worse since Charlottesville — but she has a solution

Published

on

CNN's Ana Cabrera on Saturday interviewed Susan Bro, the mother of Heather Heyer. Her daughter was murdered by a white nationalist terrorist during the "Unite the Right" rally in Charlottesville, Virginia in 2017.

"When you watch what’s happening in Portland, thankfully everything right now is peaceful, but does it sort of give you that knee-jerk reaction where your hackles kind of go up, just given everything your family has been through?" Cabrera asked.

"My hackles don’t really go down anymore," Bro replied. "I am constantly tracking these things around the country as they happen. Yeah, I think after two years ago, mine will never completely go down again."

‘I’m a nurse, what are you?’: Tennessee lawmaker humiliates anti-choice activists in brutal public grilling

Published

on

Anti-choice activists in Tennessee were unprepared for the grilling they got from a Democratic Party lawmaker when making the case for a bill that would outlaw abortion before many women knew they were pregnant.

One of the speakers in favor of the fetal heartbeat bill was Baptist Pastor Randy Davis, who was questioned by state Sen. Katrina Robinson (D-Memphis).

"How many women executive pastors do you have in your convention?" Robinson asked Davis. "Or senior pastors."

"None," Davis replied.

"So is it the same ideology that restricts access to women being able to lead a congregation that leads you all to support women not being able to make a medical decision about their body?" Robinson asked.
