A Hillsborough County School District teacher was arrested on Wednesday in Marion County, FL and charged with solicitation to commit an unlawful sexual act with a minor 16-24 and use of an electronic device to solicit/entice/lure a minor.
 
Timothy Sean Falls Jr., 29, of 602 Maryland Ave.Crystal Beach, used his cell phone to communicate with the 17-year-old victim from June 11 through June 13, according to police.
 
During these conversations, which took place over Facebook and KiK, Falls and the victim participated in numerous sexually explicit conversations. Falls asked the victim if she wished to meet. Falls further went on to advise the victim he would be home alone during the weekdays from 9-5 during the summer.
 
Although Falls attempted to arrange to meet with the victim and engage in sexual intercourse, they never did.
 
During a non-custodial, recorded interview with Falls, he admitted to initiating conversations with the victim, and leading her to believe they would meet up to have sexual intercourse. 
 
On Thursday, Falls' bond was set at $15,000.
