Falk taught math at ThunderRidge High School from July 1995 to July 2014. Deputies in Douglas County arrested him last September after investigator found he had secretly recorded minors.

"This case highlights the lengths to which child predators will go" District Attorney George Brauchler said in a statement. "A person who our community trusted for nearly two decades to have special access to our children in our public schools later abused the trust others had in him to victimize young boys and amass a library of child porn. There is no place in our free society for a person who views children as objects for perverse self-gratification."
