Fondling complaint about US teacher made years ago
Attempted fondling case reported in 1984 against US teacher now accused of lewd photos
By The Associated Press

LOS ANGELES (AP) ' A Los Angeles teacher suspected of taking bizarre bondage-style photographs of children in his class was investigated in 1994 for allegedly trying to fondle a 10-year-old girl.

Sheriff's Sgt. Dan Scott tells The Associated Press on Thursday that the incident allegedly occurred in September 1993 but wasn't reported by the girl's mother to officials at Miramonte Elementary School until the following January.

Scott says the school notified the Sheriff's Department, which investigated 61-year-old Mark Berndt and sent the case to the Los Angeles County district attorney's office, which declined to file charges.

Berndt remains jailed on $23 million bail on felony lewd acts charges.
