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.
