A professor has been jailed for six years for using the Emory University Wi-Fi download 8,000 images of child porn.

Kevin M Sullivan of Atlanta tried to cover his tracks by using his personal computer on the college’s internet system.

The 61-year-old was logging onto a banned site in Switzerland to gain access to the illegal pictures.

US Attorney John Horn said Sullivan will be on seven years of supervised release after his sentence.

He told AJC: ‘Sullivan downloaded thousands of files depicting the sexual abuse of children.

‘He attempted to cover his tracks by using his personal computer on the internet system at Emory to download the images.

‘As predators continue to try to develop new methods to feed and download child pornography, we will continue to find them and prosecute them.’

The former epidemiology professor was caught when agents were tipped off in October 2014 by Swiss authorities who seized a server that was hosting child pornography.

When they scoured the logins, it appeared someone in the Rollins School of Public Health at Emory was using the Wi-Fi to download pictures.

The university’s IT department liaised with detectives and it was discovered the site was being accessed by the pedophile.

Agents swooped on his office when he left work in June 2015 and found child porn on his laptop and external hard drive.

He was arrested at home, where his computer also showed evidence of banned images.

As well as the time he will serve in prison, Sullivan must pay a $15,000 fine.
