That should be enforced from the previous spot, NOT from the spot where A12 was illegally tackled.
Why?

If instead A12 had run 10 yards downfield and fouled there, would you want the penalty on A enforced from the previous spot? Why wipe out the progress of the play up to the time and place of the foul?
