According the the Roanoke Times, the FBI has arrested Michael Morris, an Associate Dean at the University of Virginia's McIntire School of Commerce and charged him with distributing child pornography.

FBI agents say that they were able to download over a dozen pornographic video featuring children directly from Morris' internet address via a peer-to-peer video sharing network.

UVa has suspended Morris, and say they are cooperating full with the investigation.

According to court records, Morris' preliminary hearing is scheduled for November 18 at the federal court in Harrisonburg.
