Second L.A. Teacher Under Investigation

    Students are escorted to a waiting bus as they leave Miramonte Elementary school after classes Tuesday, Jan. 31, 2012 in Los Angeles. Veteran Miramontes Elementary school teacher Mark Berndt, 61, was arrested Monday, Jan. 30, on charges of lewd conduct with 23 children after a film processor gave police photos showing blindfolded children with their mouths taped and cockroaches on their faces.

    It gets worse. A second teacher was nabbed Thursday at the Los Angeles school where Mark Berndt, who stands accused of binding and gagging students and putting cockroaches on their faces, taught. Few details have been released about the teacher, and authorities said that they have just begun their investigation. While it is unclear whether the new case is in any way related to Berndt, who has been charged with lewd conduct against 23 students, the Miramonte Elementary School teacher has been removed from the classroom and reassigned to a position where no students are present.
