(Scroll down for video) A Crown Heights teacher was arrested, charged and convicted of producing child porn after producing child porn with one of his students, the Federal Bureau of Investigations said.

Now, the Brooklyn, New York, teacher was sentenced to 50 year behind bars.

Taleek Brooks, a former employee at PS 243, The Weeksville School, was sentenced in federal court on Wednesday. He was arrested in January 2012, after FBI agents said they found child pornography on his home computer.

Prosecutors said that some of the videos recovered showed a young boy being sexually assaulted inside the classrooms of the school between 2010 and 2011. The victim confirmed that he was a former student at PS 243.

According to court documents, FBI agents found Brooks in an Internet chat room last year, when he said that he was interested in black boys, 10 years and older.
