Simi Teacher Arrested
Garden Grove Elementary School teacher Malia Brooks, 32, has been arrested and her bail was set at $2 million. The arrest comes three months after allegations first surfaced at the school.
Simi Valley police announced they arrested a teacher for having a sexual relationship with a 14-year-old student, but they would not confirm that it is Brooks connected to that specific case.
