Sicko teacher costing school district millions of dollars

LOS ANGELES – The actions of one elementary school teacher have cost the Los Angeles public school district $27 million in legal settlements.
school districtAnd the district hasn’t even settled half of the lawsuits that were filed in response to one of the most outrageous cases of student sexual abuse in U.S. history.

There were 191 lawsuits filed in the case of Mark Berndt, a former Miramonte Elementary teacher, who alleged committed sexually lewd acts involving many young students, most of them female.

Berndt is facing allegations that he put young students in bondage and then photographed them with semen-filled spoons held at their mouths and 3-inch cockroaches crawling across their faces, reports CNN. He has pleaded not guilty and currently awaits trial.

He was reportedly discovered when he brought photos of the children being abused to a drugstore to be developed.

The $27 million in settlements have only covered 58 of the 191 lawsuits that were prompted by the case. This comes out to approximately $470,000 per lawsuit thus far.

There were 23 alleged victims between the ages of 7 and 10 and all but two of them were girls, reports the Los Angeles County District Attorney’s Office.

The news story reports that the plaintiffs’ attorneys couldn’t say for certain whether any of the 23 alleged victims in the criminal case are among the 58  who have  received  civil settlements.

Berndt is currently being held on $23 million bail, one million for each of the children he allegedly tied up or fed cockroaches or semen, reports TruTv.

He faces 23 felony counts of lewd acts on a child.

    Why is the school district defending him?

    1. Millard Fillmore says

      Probably are per union contract!

      School & Teacher Unions are suppressing due to bad PR in press already!!

    2. SUSAN B MAZIARZ says

      They may NOT be defending him. The Law suites are most likely AGAINST the School district itself for perhaps having previous opportunity to fire this guy and didn’t. Now it is their responsibility to pay for damages that could have been prevented. Schools DO NOT defend or pay to defend a person with these types of charges. The Perp is responsible to take care of his own pile of sh__.

  14. Graywolf12 says

    Looks like a death penalty case to me. Will the federal government send defense lawyers to protect him since he is in a protected group.

      1. Schell says

        You got that right! The criminals have more rights than the victims. The parents of those children are just as much victims as the poor souls he committed these acts against!

    1. nick says

      In the public square no less…for all to see….This would put an end to the evil

    2. SupportMcCarthyism says

      Pedophiles will never be put to death in this country as long as they support liberalism. Because only a liberal would be a pedophile.

      1. Ben says

        Ted Nugent would be pissed off you called him a liberal. (He has a history of bragging about being a pedophile, so he apparently isn’t as offended being labeled a pedophile….) So, basically you’re full of sh*t. This guy is openly given two thumbs up by most conservatives. So they are giving their approval to a KNOWN admitted serial pedophile. Makes me want to vomit. So are you one of ‘Uncle Ted’s supporters, or do you really despise pedophiles like I do. (BTW, I’m pretty liberal, and from the looks of it, I hate pedophiles far more than most conservatives do…) What gives? Is this creep going to keep getting booked by the NRA and Fox News, or is he going to get what he DESERVES. (It wouldn’t be legal, and he wouldn’t want to live through it. It will remain a fantasy in my head, as I’m not willing to go to prison for anything related to him…)

        Here’s the lyrics to ‘Jailbait’, by Ted Nugent (be your own judge).

        .I´ve got no inhibitions
        So keep your keys out of your ignition
        I steal a car like I got the curse
        I can´t resist the old lady’s purse

        Jailbait you look so good to me
        Jailbait won´t you set me free
        Jailbait you look fine fine fine
        I know I´ve got to have you in a matter of time

        Well I don´t care if you´re just THIRTEEN
        You look too good to be true
        I just know that you´re probably clean
        There´s one lil’ thing I got do to you

        Jailbait you look so good to me
        Jailbait won´t you set me free
        Jailbait you look fine fine fine
        I know I´ve got to have you in a matter of time

        So tell your mama that I´m back in town
        She likes us boys when it´s time to get down
        She´s got this craving for the UNDERAGE
        I just might be your mama’s brand new rage

        Jailbait you look so good to me
        Jailbait won´t you set me free
        Jailbait you look fine fine fine
        I know I got to have you in a matter of time

        Honey you you you look so nice
        She´s young she´s tender
        Won´t you please surrender
        She’s so fine she´s mine
        All the time, all mine mine
        It´s all right baby
        It´s quite all right I asked your mama
        Wait a minute officer
        Don´t put those handcuffs on me
        Put them on her and I´ll share her with you

        Jailbait, jailbait

        1. SupportMcCarthyism says

          First, give me a link on YouTube or an article where he was quoted saying such. Second, I don’t listen to Ted Nugent’s music to know what he “sings”. other than for one or two songs he use to sing during the 1960’s. IF he is a pedophile, this is news to me. Just because he’s a memeber of the NRA doesn’t mean I listen to him. That said, I am not a member of the NRA because they have giving money to Harry Reid. However, I stand by what I stated, only a liberal would be a pedophile. Remember, liberal Barney Frank supported the “Pedofile Protection Act” that didn’t pass. Other than that, if you support the homosexual movement, you support NAMBLA. So don’t hand me your crap.
