Second Teacher Removed from L.A. School Campus

A second teacher was removed from campus Thursday morning at Miramonte Elementary, in South Los Angeles, reported the L.A. Times citing a source familiar with the case.

A student reported an abuse allegation to the Los Angeles County Sheriff’s Department, according to the source, who spoke on the condition of anonymity because the case was ongoing.

Sheriff’s spokesman Steve Whitmore said that the special victims’ unit, which handles crimes of sexual abuse, is looking into allegations against the Miramonte Elementary School teacher.

It is unclear if the case is related to Berndt, a teacher at the school who was arrested and charged earlier this week.
