Rutgers Instructor Faces Child Porn Charges

State prosecutors say a Rutgers University instructor used a university computer to share hundreds of videos of child pornography over the Internet

State prosecutors say a Rutgers University instructor used a university computer to share hundreds of videos of child pornography over the Internet.

 
Gavin Swiatek, a biochemistry instructor at Rutgers' Cook Campus in New Brunswick, was charged with possession and distribution of child pornography. The 49-year-old Hillsborough resident was being held Wednesday on $50,000 bail.
 
Prosecutors say state police investigators learned Swiatek was allegedly using peer-to-peer file sharing to exchange videos.
 
University officials say Swiatek has been relieved from his teaching duties and barred from returning to campus. But a decision on whether he will be fired has not yet been made.
