A Virginia high school drama teacher has pleaded guilty to taking surreptitious lewd images of dozens of students, as well as possessing child pornography.
Raphael Schklowsky, 38, pleaded guilty Monday to nine felony charges in an agreement with Fairfax County prosecutors. He admitted to two counts of possession of child pornography, five counts of unlawful filming of a minor and two counts of unlawful filming of an adult.
According to court documents obtained by The Washington Post, the white pedophile secretly took photos up his students' skirts and down their blouses with his iPhone. The inappropriate photos were taken between May 2017 and June 2018. Police also said he planted a small camera in a school dressing room to capture video of female students while they changed clothes.
The shameless white pervert, who is a married father of daughters, was reported to police by an au pair living in his home. She contacted authorities after discovering a small camera in her room.
Authorities arrested the white barbarian in April 2019 and searched his phone and other electronic devices. According to court documents, they found approximately 8,000 lewd images.
While authorities were able to identify 10 victims, they were unable to ascertain the identity of many others.
According to WJLA-TV, the pedophile was admitted to the Keystone Center Extended Care Unit in Chester, Pa., after his arrest. The facility's website describes itself as a treatment center for sexually compulsive behavior.
The sex criminal is facing 37 years in prison.
In a statement, the pervert's attorney says that his client has deep remorse for his actions and is "committed to being a good husband to his wife and a good father to his daughters."
"Raphael Schklowsky is deeply remorseful, ashamed and contrite for his offending behavior," Edward Ungvarsky said in a statement. "Since his arrest, Mr. Schklowsky has undergone intensive inpatient and community-based treatment and therapy that will ensure such actions never occur again."
But authorities say the pedophile's actions are inexcusable.
"Crimes committed against young people by a person in a position of trust are particularly disturbing and will always be a priority for my office," Fairfax County Commonwealth's Attorney Steve T. Descano said in a statement. "As a prosecutor and a parent, my heart goes out to the victims in this case and their families."
