She said she just did what was right and she's having a tough time figuring out what went wrong. "I was totally shocked. I didn't even expect it. They just stabbed me in my back. It still hurts. I would never change my mind on that. I got fired for it, whatever. I would never change my mind. I would do it all over again," said Cerrillo.
West Park Superintendent Ralph Vigil refused to comment on the lawsuit Wednesday, but we spoke to him about Cerrillo seven months ago. Back then, he said she was a likeable person, but that the school district didn't have to give a reason for firing any employee.
One interesting note: one of Cerrillo's lawyers is Dan Siegel. Siegel represented Johnson-Klein against Fresno State.
