Official: 2nd teacher removed from Los Angeles school where other charged with molestation
LOS ANGELES (AP) ' A second teacher has been removed from a classroom at a Los Angeles elementary school where a teacher this week was charged with photographing children for sexual thrills.
Los Angeles Unified School District Superintendent John Deasy (DAY'-see) confirmed to KTTV-TV Friday morning that a teacher was removed from contact with children at Miramonte Elementary School after someone made some accusations against him.
Deasy won't provide details but says the teacher is under law enforcement investigation.
Third-grade teacher Mark Berndt, who worked at the school for 30 years, was charged this week with committing lewd acts against 23 students, some as young as 6.
Authorities say he would pose them in the classroom and fed them his semen on a spoon and cookies.
