Malia Brooks – a 32-year old teacher at Garden Grove Elementary School in Simi Valley, California – was arrested this week on charges that she conducted multiple sex act with a minor.
The identity of the victim is being withheld, but he is reportedly a sixth grader under the age of 14.
Brooks, meanwhile, is divorced with two children and her defense attorney has already claimed she suffers from some kind of mental illness.
According to KTLA, authorities were notified of Brooks’ alleged conduct by the Simi Valley Unified School District in February.
Brooks was placed on administrative leave at that time and police have been conducting and investigation ever since.
She resigned from her teaching post a few days prior to her June 10 arrest and school district officials are cooperating with Simi Police in the case.
