Western Child Porn Possession Arrest

A 38-year-old Western student is arrested for possession of child pornography.

Keith A. Hartman of Morgantown was arrested in his dorm room at Barnes Campbell Hall the night of Aug. 7, 2007.

Western officials say another student was searching for music using peer-to-peer software when he came across the images from Hartman’s computer. The student tipped off Housing and Residence Life who contacted authorities.

WKU Police obtained a search warrant for Hartman’s room and he was taken into custody August 7.

Hartman is in the Warren County Jail. Western officials said Hartman was enrolled in classes last spring and is scheduled for classes this fall.

Housing officials said those students are allowed to live on campus during the summer to work full time to pay for classes.
