NYC teacher's aide indicted on federal charges of molesting boy, distributing child porn
NEW YORK (AP) ' A grand jury has indicted a teacher's aide at a New York elementary school on charges of molesting a boy and distributing child pornography.
Taleek Brooks' federal indictment was unsealed Wednesday. Brooks was arrested last month after FBI agents said they found homemade child pornography on his computer.
The indictment charges Brooks with sexually assaulting the boy in seven images found in the computer files.
It alleges that the attacks occurred in 2009 and 2010. Investigators say they believe the pictures were taken inside the Brooklyn school where Brooks worked.
According to court papers obtained by the Daily News (http://nydn.us/wqNgmA ), FBI agents found Brooks in a chat room last year saying he was "interested in black boys 10 years old and older."
Brooks' attorney, Michael Weil, had no comment Thursday.
