This is the biggest act of bravery I have seen in quite some time.

The former student, who calls herself "Jamie," said the abuse started when she was 12 years old. She is 28 now.

The woman says she was molested by the then teacher at a middle school in Riverside, California. The teacher was an assistant principal at a school in Alhambra, California when the woman called to confront her.

Within hours, the educator resigned from her job at another school in California. Police launched an investigation. And the former student, who once felt powerless, now says she feels vindicated knowing the ex-teacher is no longer working with children.
