UVA Associate Dean Charged With Distributing Child Porn

Associate dean and professor Michael G. Morris of the University of Virginia's McIntire School of Commerce has been charged with distributing child pornography, according to federal officials.

Morris is accused of sharing pornographic videos on an Internet peer-to-peer network. An affadavit says FBI agents downloaded more than 17 child pornography videos directly from Morris' home Internet address. The victims in the pornography appeared to be as young as 8 years old.

UVA says Morris has been suspended. He is being held without bond pending a preliminary hearing Nov. 18.

The judge in the case denied bond, saying there were "no conditions or combination of conditions" that would ensure Morris is not a danger to the community.
