    New York Daily News: Parents and students come forward to FBI about Brooklyn teacher's aide (Feb 8 2012)

    Children and parents started coming forward to report possible abuse by a Brooklyn teacher’s aide Wednesday as FBI agents scoured the school where he’s suspected of filming kiddie porn ... One mother said she had an “inkling” of the problem after Brooks bought her now-12-year-old son clothes, called repeatedly as late as 3 a.m. and offered her son an extra bedroom in his apartment. I had issues with him. I had words with him. I told him to stay away,” she said, adding that she didn’t tell Principal Karen Hambright-Glover because Brooks “could do no wrong in her eyes.”

    Taleek Brooks, who worked at PS 243 -- also known as the Weeksville School -- in Bedford-Stuyvesant,is accused of having more than 1,000 computer files depicting child pornography that he had allegedly accumulated for about seven years through a file-sharing program, according to a criminal complaint. Brooks allegedly confessed to those crimes, saying the children in the files he collected were as young as 10 years old. U.S. Magistrate Judge Joan Azrack held Brooks without bail Tuesday afternoon. Brooks did not enter a plea, and his next court date was not yet scheduled. FBI agents examining his computer and equipment that was seized last month in his bedroom found videos of Brooks molesting a young boy and spanking a naked child in a classroom, officials said. The FBI believes the videos were created between 2008 and 2011.

    The Village Voice: Taleek Brooks, Brooklyn Teacher's Aide, Accused Of Filming Kiddie Porn In Classroom (March 7 2012)

    "Boy opened up wide by neighbor." That's the title of one of the several kiddie porn videos federal prosecutors say Taleek Brooks, a teacher's aide at a Brooklyn elementary school, had saved on his computer, according to a 12-count federal indictment obtained by the Voice ... But it gets worse. According to the feds, some of the videos were actually filmed in a classroom at PS 243, the school where Brooks has worked as an aide in a special education class for the last 17 years. Some of his underage (ahem) co-stars, the feds believe, were students at the school. In addition to filming himself molesting children, Brooks is accused of distributing the videos over the Internet to other perverts. In all, federal investigators discovered more than 1,000 digital files of kids as young as 10 engaging in sexual acts on Brooks' computer.
