FSU Student Busted for Child Porn

REPORT BY AMY LONG:

A local college senior is behind bars on 28 counts of possesion of child pornography.. but he's not the first Seminole to get caught on the wrong side of the law.

One FSU student got a rude awakening Thursday 11/18 morning when deputies from the North Florida Internet Crimes Against Children Task Force came knocking on his Villa Del Lago apartment door ... arresting 22-year-old Michael Sendker and charging him with 28 counts of possesion of child pornography. Deputies say the full time Philosophy student was downloading pictures and videos from his personal computer.

But Sendker's not the first ... Back in April, detectives tracked illegal online activities back to Kyle Barnes who lived in Ragans Hall. 19-year-old Barnes faces six counts of possession of child pornography.

FSU graduate student, 27-year-old Michael Reaid was arrested on two federal charges of child pornography in June.

And 49-year-old Michael Sullivan - a graduate teaching assistant at FSU - traded in his class time for jail time when he was charged with 46 counts of child porn possession back in September.
