Tonight: Elementary school teacher accused of classroom bondage horror. Were complaints ignored?

A fourth-grade teacher in Los Angeles is in jail, charged with lewd acts. He is accused of taking photographs of his young students for sexual kicks. Among the crimes the sheriff's department says he committed against children: putting tape over mouths or blindfolds over eyes with spoonfuls of a substance near their mouths, and feeding them sperm-laced cookies. Authorities say the teacher documented it all through photos. Since his arrest this week, former students who are now adults, say their complaints about the 30-year veteran teacher were ignored.
