Truly Disturbing Headline: Teacher Arrested For Student Bondage Photos

When I read the headline I was a little shocked.  What would make a teacher, someone that is trusted to work with children, do something like this?  Read on for the details.

A Californian teacher has been arrested after 40 photos of blindfolded and gagged children were handed over to police by a film processor.

Mark Berndt, 61, was arrested on Monday and has been accused of taking bondage photos of up to two dozen children inside a classroom.

Some of the photos show depict huge Madagascar cockroaches crawling on the children, the Los Angeles Times reports.

Berndt has been charged with committing lewd acts with 23 boys and girls aged between seven and 10 between 2009 and 2010.

He worked at the Miramonte Elementary School in LA but was fired last year, despite no student ever coming forward to report the abuse.

The Superintendent of the school district John Deasy said Berndt was fired as soon as he was aware of the alleged abuse.

The alleged victims have been given psychological support over the past year.
