Detectives with LA County Sheriff's Special Victims Bureau arrested 61-year-old Mark Berndt, a teacher with over 30 years experience at Miramonte Elementary School, after conducting a year long sex crimes investigation.
The investigation began when over 40 photographs depicting, mainly female children in a school classroom, with their eyes blindfolded and their mouths taped were turned into law enforcement by a film processor. Film processors are mandated to report suspected child abuse under California law (11166 P.C.)
The suspect, Mark Berndt, was seen in some photographs with his arm around the children or with his hand over their mouth. In addition, the photographs depicted girls with what appeared to be a blue plastic spoon filled with an unknown clear/white liquid substance up to their mouths as if they were going to swallow the substance.
The kids reportedly told police their teacher said it was a game and the substance was "sugar."
Detectives recovered a blue plastic spoon and an empty container from the trash within the suspect's classroom. The recovered items tested positive for semen and the suspect's DNA matched that of the semen profile found on the spoon and packaging.
