A California woman posted a YouTube video on Friday in which she makes a phone call to the teacher she claims sexually abused her as a child. The woman in the video is now 28 years old. The accused teacher she called was working as an assistant principal at the time of the call, but quit her job over the weekend after the phone call took place.
The alleged abuse victim refers to herself as Jamie X. Her given description of the video reads as follows
“I am 28 years old and have been waiting years to get up enough courage to report a teacher for sexually abusing me for years. When I finally got up enough courage to report her, I found out that the statute of limitations was up and she will never have to pay for the things that she did to me. I decided to call her and make a video to let the public know what kind of person is around their children. Her name is [name redacted] and works with your children at Alhambra High School in Alhambra, Ca. Please help spread the word that this person is out there "helping" YOUR children!”
The accused teacher answered Jamie’s phone call in her school office. In the call, which lasted about three minutes, Jamie asks the accused teacher if she knew that what she did to her as a child was wrong.
“Yes, and I regret it,” the teacher says.
“So what happens when a student comes in and says they’re having a sexual relationship with a teacher?” Jamie asks.
“Then I would involve law enforcement,” the teacher responds.
“So how is that any different from what you did when I was at Chemawa Middle?” Jamie asks.
After a lengthy pause, the teacher says “It’s not.”
The Alhambra Unified School District, for whom the woman worked until Saturday, released a statement about the video over the weekend.
“Alhambra high school administration received an electronic message with a YouTube link incriminating an Alhambra high school administrator,” the statement reads. “Alhambra high school administration contacted the Alhambra Police Department immediately upon discovering the link. She is no longer an employee of Alhambra High School or the Alhambra Unified School District.”
The Alhambra Police Department immediately launched an investigation into the matter. The accused woman has not been charged with anything as of this writing.
