A U of L administrative assistant in Ekstrom Library was arrested March 20 for allegedly distributing child pornography online according to WDRB.

Christopher Lee Dresing, 33, was arrested and charged with 50 counts of distribution of matter portraying a sexual performance by a minor.

The Kentucky State Police Electronic Crimes Branch was alerted to Christopher Lee Dresing after he uploaded images online. Some photos allegedly showed children under two years old.

The arrest report said Dresing was apparently attempting to adopt a child to abuse.

“We were disappointed to learn that an employee allegedly engaged in inappropriate conduct. The employee has been placed on administrative leave pending the Kentucky State Police investigation. We will cooperate fully with authorities as they investigate the case,” U of L Spokesperson John Karman said in a statement.

Dresing was scheduled for arraignment March 21. Louisville Metro Corrections could not be reached for comment at the time of publication.
