RIVERSIDE, Calif. (AP) — Arraignment has been postponed for a California educator who was charged with sex crimes after a former student confronted her years later by phone and posted video of the conversation on YouTube.
Andrea Cardosa appeared briefly in Riverside County Superior Court on Friday and acknowledged about a dozen supporters.
Defense attorney Randy Collins says the arraignment was postponed to April 18 to give him time to argue that the charges should be dismissed because of the statute of limitations.
One of Cardosa's two accusers posted the YouTube video on Jan. 17. In it, the now-adult former student called Cardosa at a high school in a Los Angeles suburb where she was an assistant principal. The accuser sent a video link to that school's principal and Cardosa quickly resigned her post.
