A Brooklyn teacher's aide who allegedly videotaped himself in sexually explicit conduct with children and distributed child porn over the Internet is set to be arraigned on March 14.

Taleek Brooks, 41, was indicted Monday on seven counts of child sexual exploitation and four counts of distributing and possessing child pornography.

One of the films he distributed was titled "Boy opened up wide by neighbor," according to the indictment.

Brooks, a special education aide who had worked at P.S. 243 for 17 years, was arrested by the FBI in January after allegedly transmitting child pornography electronically to an undercover agent. He pled not guilty to those charges in federal court.

But more than 1,000 images of children - some of which allegedly depict Brooks touching and spanking kids at the Bed-Stuy school - were found by investigators in cameras and computers confiscated from his Brooklyn home. Those led to his second arrest in February. He remains in custody.
