Investigators say Brooks had videos that allegedly showed him sexually abusing at least two children inside a classroom at P.S. 243 in Brooklyn.

Prosecutors said evidence included videos of Brooks allegedly spanking one naked child and fondling another in a classroom. Investigators believe the videos were shot sometime between January 2008 and January 2011.

Brooks was a popular teacher’s aide who coached basketball and supervised after-school activities. The criminal complaints says FBI agents discovered Brooks’ activity by catching him sharing child porn online.

Brooks was initially arrested in mid-January. Investigators searched his home and confiscated his computer and two external hard drives. Once agents did a forensic exam of the computer, they say they found videos of him allegedly sexually abusing children.

School officials said Brooks had no prior criminal history and passed all background checks before he was hired.

Brooks faces a minimum of 15 years if convicted.
