CLEVELAND, OH (WOIO) - New sex charges have been filed against a Cleveland school teacher.

The student broke her silence after more than a decade in the dark. The incident supposedly happened in 1999 when the accuser was in second grade.

Its been 11 years and now the victim says she was raped in the girl's bathroom by Jeffrey Joseph, a gym teacher at Miles Elementary.

According to a police report, the girl first told her story to her current school principal in Summit County.

Speaking to 19 Action News by telephone, Joseph says he's upset by all this. "I hope this never happens to anybody," said Joseph.

Joseph has just been indicted on the charges by a grand jury.
