Officials at three school districts that hired a former teacher now accused of sexually assaulting two female students -- one of whom made her accusations public in a YouTube video -- said that each time, she passed all necessary background checks. Riverside County prosecutors filed felony charges Monday against 40-year-old Andrea Michelle Cardosa, who was arrested later in the day. Cardosa -- who resigned from her post as vice principal at Alhambra High School shortly after the YouTube video surfaced --  faces 16 counts related to aggravated sexual assault and lewd acts on a child under the age of 14, officials said.

Councilman Barry L. Hatch had proposed a campus that would be shared by the two-year college and the high school as a way of avoiding demolition of homes in Monterey Park to clear land for a high school.
