BLOOMINGTON, Ind. (AP) — Police say an Indiana University employee downloaded child pornography onto a school-issued laptop.
The 32-year-old man was arrested Tuesday on suspicion of possession of child pornography. Police say they've found at least 30 images of child pornography on the man's university-owned laptop.
University spokesman Mark Land told The (Bloomington) Herald-Times (http://bit.ly/1K7RTtK ) that the staff member was fired Wednesday. He worked in the school's Office of Student Ethics.
Bloomington Police Capt. Joe Qualters said an IP address led investigators to a computer at Indiana University that may have been used to upload an inappropriate image to an email account.
Quaulters said authorities got a court order to find out who was associated with the IP address, which led them to the now-fired employee.
