Officer says UT official admitted to having child porn on computer

Posted:

KNOXVILLE (WATE) - A former University of Tennessee official made a shocking revelation during a hearing on child porn charges.

Bruce Downsbrough, 60, was arrested last Tuesday after allegedly downloading child pornography from out-of-state. He now faces four federal child pornography charges.

At a hearing Monday, a Knoxville Police Department officer testified that Downsbrough admitted to having the material on his computer.

The officer said he told them he had a previous charge of child molestation stemming from an incident in the 1980s in Colorado.

Downsbrough said that he kept large amounts of pornography so that he would not molest again, the officer said.

Downsbrough reportedly still has a home in Colorado and visits frequently.

The former UT Foundation official was fired from the position last week.
