UConn tackle facing child pornography charges

Hot on the heels of the shocking Derrell Johnson-Koulianos arrest comes a potentially even more shocking set of charges against a college football player: the Hartford Courant reported this morning that UConn offensive tackle Greg McKee is being held on charges of importing child pornography, obscenity, and "promoting a minor in an obscene performance."

McKee, a freshman, had been suspended indefinitely by the team on Tuesday and then turned himself in to authorities Wednesday after learning a warrant had been issued for his arrest. Law enforcement has apparently been building their case against McKee for quite some time:
State police said their computer crimes unit received information in September about possible possession and distribution of child pornography.

Detectives executed a search and seizure warrant in November at McKee's dorm room at Rosebrooks Hall, state police said. Items of evidence were seized during that search and were examined, state police said.

The impact on UConn in on-field football terms should be negligible; McKee's absence won't be felt at all on their veteran offensive line. But the case has the potential to become a huge distraction for a team that can't afford any loss of focus as they prepare for a Fiesta Bowl that may be the toughest game in their program's abbreviated Division I history.

As for McKee, suffice it to say that football will be the very least of his worries for the foreseeable future.

First off, this is disgusting and I hope it was just a stupid kid trying to make money. My thought is, how do police know how old the kids are in the video? Without knowing the origin of the content or the individuals on the video, is it just an educated guess?

Great. Is this going to rekindle the debate on whether college athletes should be paid? "I wouldn't have posted child porn for money if I got a stipend for playing football."

UConn tackle facing child pornography charges

My first thought when it said he was a freshman was: "its his 17 year old girlfriend, less than a year younger than him." Than:

"State police said they found videos on McKee's computer of children ranging in age from 8 to 15 engaging in sexual activity, and that there was evidence that he had transmitted the videos to others on the Internet."

Now he is just scum.

What is worse... this guy loading child pornography, or the fact that UCONN got an automatic bid to the BCS?

McKee admitted to police that he uploaded the videos, but he said someone he met online was supposed to pay him for posting them. McKee claims he was never paid."

Did he really think that it was ok if someone advised they would pay to post them.  Is he really that dumb to think that he wouldn't get into trouble for that!
