The Los Angeles County Sheriff's Department says a second teacher removed from a south Los Angeles elementary school this week has been arrested.

A second teacher has been removed from a classroom at a Los Angeles elementary school where a teacher this week was charged with photographing children for sexual thrills.

Los Angeles Unified School District Superintendent John Deasy
says the teacher was removed from contact with children at Miramonte Elementary School after someone made some accusations against him.

Deasy won't provide details but says the teacher is under law enforcement investigation.

Third-grade teacher Mark Berndt, who worked at the school for 30 years, was charged this week with committing lewd acts against 23
students, some as young as 6.

A sheriff's investigator says the second teacher has not been arrested or charged.
