EL PASO-- Ex-Irvin High School teacher Marco Alferez has been sentenced to 50-years in prison for child porn-- the maximum sentence. 

The former El Paso teacher admitted to secretly videotaping hundreds of students to create his personal child porn collection. 

In August, Marco Alferez admitted to making over 150 porn tapes of his students while he was teaching at five different area schools. 

He told investigators he placed a hidden camera in a dressing room, before order kids to get completely nude while they tried on different outfits.

Court documents show that in all, 393 of Alferez's students were victimized.

Today, one of those victims and her mother testified, describing the severe psychological trauma they've had to endure because of Alferez's actions. 

The victim's mother said the 50-year sentence was a relief.

This is the best news I've heard lately. I hate you, Marco! You are getting everything you deserve for what you have been doing for so long.

Raping children should get a man at least 50 years! What concerns me is when will he be eligible for parole?? Hopefully, there's no chance that he can be released early! That would be a travesty for the next generation of children in El Paso.

50 years!! Wow he's gonna make his cel-mate very happy. Betcha he keeps plucking his eyebrows! Better sleep with your eyes open, monster.

I hate to say this at this time...but I wonder when he will be eligible for parole. I bet he won't be in jail very long. What a shame.

wow that was a harsh sentence....Ijust hope they sentence that drunk driver to life
