GLASTONBURY, Conn. (WTNH) – A former UConn professor and researcher is facing a child pornography charge.
Following an investigation, 38-year-old Jason Gibson of Glastonbury was arrested on Thursday.
Officials say he admitted to downloading child pornography on his phone.
UConn said his contract ended earlier this year before the investigation began.
Gibson’s contract was not renewed and he is no longer affiliated with the school.
Gibson has been charged with illegal possession of child pornography in the first degree and he is scheduled to appear in court at a later date.
