UConn student arrested for downloading child pornography on campus

STORRS, Conn. (AP) - University of Connecticut police say they have arrested an 18-year-old student after detectives found dozens of images and videos of child pornography on his laptop computer.

Chun Wang posted $100,000 bail on Friday after being arraigned on a charge of felony possession of child pornography in Rockville Superior Court. His case was continued to April 26.

Police say they received a tip last October that child porn images were downloaded to an IP address located on the Storrs campus and determined Wang downloaded them. The Hartford Courant reports Wang told police he didn't know possessing child porn was a crime.

Messages seeking comment were left for Wang's lawyer Saturday.

UConn officials say they can't comment on Wang's case, but code of conduct violations can result in discipline including expulsion.
