Radford U. Professor Arrested On Child Porn Charges

Posted: Updated:

RADFORD, Va. (AP) - A criminal justice professor at Radford University has been arrested on child pornography charges.

Media outlets report 34-year-old Taj Mahon-Haft of Radford was arrested Thursday on 24 counts of possession of child pornography.

He was indicted earlier this month on drug charges, and a Radford police news release says investigators used a search warrant to seize computers from his home stemming from those charges.

Mahon-Haft was placed on administrative leave earlier this week. He's being held in the New River Valley Regional Jail on $10,000 bond. Jail records didn't indicate whether he has an attorney.
