Former professor sentenced to probation, has to register as a sex offender
A former Ball State professor of Information and Communication Sciences received his sentence from a judge after being charged with possession of child pornography.
Robert Yadon, 70, Muncie, was arrested in June 2016 after Ball State University Police were notified about "suspicious activity" on a university computer network.
After UPD served a search warrant on Yadon's office in Robert Bell, they located "several digital photographs that depicts sexual conduct by children who appear to be under the age of 18," according to a probable cause affidavit.
Yadon, the former director of the Applied Research Institute, was charged with possession of child pornography and pled guilty in July 2017.
The Delaware County Prosecutor's office said the judge gave Yadon a two-year sentence Tuesday, however both years were suspended.
He will have to serve two years of supervised probation and register as a sex offender.
