According to media reports, the accused named Mark Berndt, an ex-teacher at an elementary school blindfolded dozen of students and photographed them for his sexual pleasure.
Reports further revealed that there are a total of 23 male and female alleged victims, all ranging in age from 7 to 10-years-old. They also reported the crimes took place between 2008 and 2010.
Moreover, investigators found a few photographs showing a giant live cockroach crawling on children’s faces and others show a blue plastic spoon allegedly filled with Berndt's semen held up to their mouths.
Investigators have been searching for DNA evidences in the classroom to connect the accused to sexual crimes against the 23 students. Meanwhile, a Los Angeles court has set Bern’t bail at USD 23 million. Reports claim that, if he convicted, he could face life in prison.
