RIVERSIDE, Calif. (AP) — A California educator who was confronted by a former student on a YouTube video has been charged with 16 counts of sexual abuse.
The Riverside County District Attorney's office said Monday that 40-year-old Andrea Cardosa was charged with five counts of aggravated sexual assault on a child and 11 other counts of abuse.
The case came to light after a now 28-year-old woman posted a video on YouTube showing her making a call to confront Cardosa about the abuse allegations that she said began when she was 12.
The video went viral, and a second alleged victim later came forward.
The district attorney's office says a $5 million warrant has been issued for Cardosa.
Cardosa's lawyer, Randy Collins, said he couldn't immediately comment as he had not yet been advised by prosecutors of the charges.
