UC Program Director Arrested on Child Pornography Charges

-

A program director at the University of Cincinnati (UC) College of Medicine was arrested Wednesday on charges of sharing child pornography.

Investigators monitoring John “Ned” Donnelly’s online activities have accused him of sending them obscene images of underage girls on the internet. Donnelly has admitted to downloading and uploading child pornography and faces two felony charges of “pandering obscenity involving a minor,” according to a press release by the Hamilton County Sheriff’s Office.

The Regional Electronics and Computer Investigations (RECI) section that investigates individuals involved in crimes against children had been monitoring Donnelly. The investigation was conducted in cooperation with the nationwide taskforce, Internet Crimes Against Children.

Responding to Donnelly’s arrest, UC spokesperson M.B. Reilley told News Record, “The university yesterday learned that John Donnelly has been arrested at his home. Consistent with university policy, Donnelly has been placed on administrative leave.” 

Donnelly is being held on a $10,000 bond at the Hamilton County Justice Center. RECI is still monitoring his online activities.

Officers have requested anyone with information regarding this case to contact RECI at (513) 946-8338.
