    A grand jury has indicted a teacher's aide at a Brooklyn elementary school on charges of molesting a boy and distributing child pornography.

    Taleek Brooks' federal indictment was unsealed Wednesday. Brooks was arrested last month after FBI agents said they found homemade child pornography on his computer. 

    The indictment charges Brooks with sexually assaulting the boy in seven images found in the computer files.

    It alleges that the attacks took place in 2009 and 2010. Investigators believe the pictures were taken inside the school where Brooks worked.

    According to court papers, FBI agents found Brooks in an Internet chat room last year saying he was "interested in black boys 10 years old and older."
