Video: Woman Calls And Confronts The Teacher Who Allegedly Molested Her
A video has emerged over the weekend that shows a 28-year-old woman confronting her alleged molester over the phone.
The caller, known as 'Jamie X,' posted the video on Friday, ABC 7 reports. In the video, she is seen calling Alhambra High School, where the teacher, whom the victim claims molested her when she was 12, works as an assistant principal. According to Jamie, the alleged abuser used to work at Chemawa Middle School in Riverside.
"Do you realize that you brainwashed me and you manipulated me and that what you did was wrong?" Jamie asks the woman on the other line.
"Yes, and I regret it," the alleged abuser responds.
"Do you know that I am completely messed up? That I have so many issues because of you?" Jamie presses.
"I only...I just wanted to help you," the alleged abuser says.
The video is very tough to watch. Throughout the nearly nine-minute video, the alleged molester doesn't challenge a single accusation from Jamie, admitting that she is ashamed and disgusted with herself.
"I regret it every day. Every day." she says.
Since its posting, the video has been watched over 60,000 times and has been posted in various corners of the internet, including reddit. The assistant principal in the video has resigned from Alhambra High School and a police investigation is ongoing,CBS 2 reports.
Yesterday, Jamie responded to the outpouring of support from the internet:
I don't even know where to begin. I am so grateful to all of you for making this video go viral. It is true. She did resign shortly after I had sent the link of the video to the Principals email. She is caught but not in custody. I was interviewed at the police station where I made my report to move forward with charges. Because of all of you who shared she will not be getting away with these things that she has done to me or any one else. I've shared my story with Sara Welch of Ktla5 and it will air some time tomorrow morning. Thank you all again.... I really can't thank you all enough!!!
