Brooklyn teacher's aide arrested on sex abuse charges

A teacher's aide in Brooklyn who was arrested last month on charges of distributing child pornography has been arrested by the FBI again for allegedly sexually abusing children in the school where he worked, NBC New York has learned.

Taleek Brooks was a teacher's aide at PS 243 in Crown Heights.

After his first arrest, FBI officials said they searched Brooks' home. Officials said they discovered videos that allegedly showed him in the school molesting children.


Last month, Brooks was arrested for allegedly possessing and distributing more than 1,000 images of child pornography.

Prosecutors did not immediately say how many children in the school may have been affected. The videos allegedly show children being spanked and having their private areas touched, officials said.

A spokesman for U.S. attorney Loretta Lynch said Brooks is expected to be in Brooklyn federal court later Tuesday on the child abuse-related charges. 

An attempt to reach Brooks' attorney for comment was not immediately successful.

Investigators are looking to see if there are any additional victims.  Anyone with information is asked to call the FBI at 212-384-5000.
