Daily Mirror reports:
Mark Berndt, 62, pleaded guilty at a hearing on Friday to 23 crimes at the Miramonte Elementary School in Los Angeles, America, against 30 of his pupils.
He is expected to be jailed for 25 years.
Berndt reportedly called the sick acts “tasting games” and they would involve him offering out cookies laced with his semen while keeping the students blindfolded.
Before he offered his plea, distraught mothers of the victims told the court how their daughters’ lives had been ruined.
According to reports, some of them now have eating disorders.
Berndt was finally caught when a drugstore photo technician noticed photos showing children as young as eight blindfolded.
Police later found a plastic spoon with traces of semen in a classroom bin.
He is also suspected of putting cockroaches on the students’ faces and taping some of their mouths shut, according to KTLA 5.
Berndt’s defense attorney says he is remorseful but what’s done is done. He destroyed his 39-year teaching career and faces 23 counts of lewd conduct.
