Simi Valley, Calif. (The Weekly Vice) - Malia Brooks, a 32-year-old teacher at Garden Grove Elementary School, has been jailed after she allegedly had sex with a male student who was under the age of 14.
According to police, an investigation was launched on February 22 after the alleged relationship between Brooks and the child surfaced.
Investigators say the relationship began in late 2012 and continued for four months. The exact age of the victim has not been disclosed, but court documents confirm that the child is under the age of 14.
Brooks, who is divorced with two children, was placed on administrative leave by the school district when the allegations surfaced. She then submitted her resignation on June 5.
Brooks' attorney says his client suffers from "manic episodes" that she is now in treatment for.
She was booked into jail and charged with lewd acts upon a child, oral copulation of a person under 14 years of age and three counts of genital penetration by a foreign object. Her bond is currently set at $2 million.
