This woman has serious courage.



RIVERSIDE -- A 28-year-old woman posted a video on YouTube containing an emotionally-charged phone conversation with a former teacher she said molested her for years, starting when she was 12.

CBS Los Angeles reports that the alleged victim  — who calls herself Jamie X — said the abuse started when she was a student at Chemawa Middle School in Riverside.

On YouTube Jamie X wrote, “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.”



Justice via youtube

The Alhambra Unified School District sent Hopper a statement.  It says in part, “Alhambra high school administration received an electronic message with a YouTube link incriminating an Alhambra high school administrator. 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.”


I was not aware there were time limits to report child molesting. Is this true? Thankfully the digital frontier provided a new brand of frontier justice and she may have helped other victims in doing this. Brave lady to post this.

Brave indeed, but I'm uneasy in general about trial by YouTube. The potential is there for malicious accusations and vigilante action.

I think she's wrong about the California Statute of Limitations when it comes to assaults on children: uk.ask.com...

She should get a good attorney and go to the police.

Seems like she intentionally missed the statute of limitations.

Doesn't make sense.

Also, kinda odd she posted this right when that ruling takes place that says online bloggers etc can pretty much say whatever they want like journalists and the burden of proof is on the person being blamed to prove it isn't true.

Fishy timing.

I think I will just ignore this one.

In general I would agree, however in this situation the video appears to capture a conversation with and an admission by the former teacher who was serving as an assistant principal...with more children. Let the suspect search for a good attorney and cash in her 401K to pay for it this time around I say.

I feel bad for this young lady. She's brave for doing what she did. I can't see how this teacher can still be employed after this video is going to be watched by thousands of people. Now she's an assistant principal! WOW! I hope parents who have kids attending that school see this video and demand having this assistant principal removed and fired. If she molested this young girl, she had to have molested others.

This young lady needs to take this recording and find a good attorney and press for charges against this teacher/assistant principal. There is no way in hell this person should be allowed to be among children. Considering this young lady was a minor at the time, I would think she should still be able to press charges against this women. If she can't, the system in California must be skewed and sympathizes toward molesters.

Hey folks. Remember now, don't trust your precious kids to just any authority.

Schools, Churches, Boy Scouts, summer camp, are all venues that pedophiles seek out to get access to them. Not saying these are bad institutions, just beware of who is in charge of your children there.

Protect them, be diligent.

So YouTube replaces the justice system? What a wonderful idea! If you know someone who has done something bad, all you have to do is post a YouTube video with your accusation, and the perpetrator is automatically found guilty, loses his or her job, and is the recipient of hateful posts! You don't even need to spend money on an expensive lawyer for this. Just a rudimentary knowledge of your built-in WebCam, some suitably emotional "testimony," and you, too, can be prosecutor, judge, and jury all in a few minutes.

Besides, we all know these scumbags are guilty. This whole idea of "innocent until proven guilty" is just such outdated nonsense. THIS works a lot better, and I can PROVE it!

Remember a few weeks ago when this lesbian waitress showed how she had been stiffed for a tip on a $100 dinner bill because the restaurant guests did not "agree" with her lesbian lifestyle? And remember how she said she would give any donations received to the "Wounded Warriors" project since she, herself, had been in combat and was the only member of her team not killed by an IED? She's been sexually abused, too.

Oh, wait........

That was all a lie. The restaurant guest proved he had given a generous (20% +) tip. She had never been in combat and was kicked out of the service. And NOT ONE PENNY went to the Wounded Warrior Project. Instead she kept thousands of dollars of donations.

So, yeah, all you gotta do is cry on camera. Sounds like justice to me!

Although, I get what you are saying completely. In this situation the teacher confessed right in the phone call. I think what this girl did was extremely brave and an excellent way to get justice, being that the statute of limitations is possibly up. There use to be no outlet for the abused, so in this day and age, those that are abusers, should fear greatly.

How do you post that long of a reply to an opening post you didn't read and a video you didn't watch? Your reply doesn't relate. The video is of her calling the former teacher who admits she had a sexual relationship with a 12 year old. She acknowledges it and never even apologizes to her victim...The now grown woman in the video. The video was shared with the school where the suspect was an assistant principal. The school contacted police and the suspect is no longer employed. The jury will hopefully come later after a police investigation with a confession by the suspect recorded by the victim and shared on youtube.

This victim is simply supplying a confession made to her. Let justice land where it may from there. It's a confession by the suspect not simply a whine by the victim. Any prosecutor should appreciate the assist and it is also possible more children were victimized by this administrator.

Before you judge you might consider reading and listening to the evidence provided please. The situation is quite different than you portray in your reply.

Peace and tin foil hats off to a brave woman who gathered her own evidence.

Here is an additional video:

Seems the relations continued until she was 20 years old.

Unfortunately there is, I think in Australia it may be 6/7 years.

Which is appalling considering if you were abused for some time and are familiar with your abuser for another 7, 8, 10 years before you can confidently report what happened, you don't get justice.

The problem with any kind of sexual abuse is that the victim feels shame, and like they are at fault. My daughter was raped and it caused all manner of emotional problems for her, including me finding out because of a nearly successful suicide attempt.

When someone is sexually abused as a child by someone in authority over them, they feel all the things my daughter did, plus an abundance of other feelings that none of us can even begin to imagine. Why does the alter boy who is abused by the priest often almost never report, or only report years and years and years later..?

Reporting later rather than immediately, is all too common with childhood sexual abuse. Nothing fishy at all about it. To be honest, reporting such an incidence immediately would make it more suspect than reporting later. However, I would like to see the day that children felt comfortable enough to do so.

I'm not a lawyer but I believe the statuet of limitations applies to all crimes except murder and not sure of treason.

Except I am pretty sure that confession is not admissible in the court of law..... No way to prove it wasn't edited for one thing.

How do we know the muffled and often undecipherable voice on the other end was the teacher at all?

Interesting. So what recourse does said teacher have?

After the statute of limitations expiration so there won't be any investigation, right?

If I make a video saying JamieX touched my no-no place 15 years ago does that go in societies record books as a fact?

Now, I'm not calling her a liar. Personally I don't doubt the story. I'm just wondering what can somebody do to defend themselves against anyone just going online and claiming anything about anyone?

Looks like the immediate public reaction is overwhelmingly to sympathize with the claimant even in the face of a total lack of evidence.

From what I understand, from the news, the teacher confessed and is possibly having some type of charges brought against her. She resigned also, so I don't see any reason to think it was edited.

I believe she's an attention seeker, if she was indeed sexually molested 15 years ago why the hush hush until now?
She had her family i am quite sure they would have protected her.

While I agree that this could set an extremely harmful social precedent to convict innocent people in the court of public opinion, in this circumstance she has her molester on the phone admitting to the molestation in context of the conversation. I think that this circumstance is probably legitimate, but I can understand why you are leery of creating an environment that is friendly to cyber-lynch-mobbing.
