ALBEMARLE COUNTY, Va. (NEWSPLEX) -- A former University of Virginia professor was indicted Monday morning in Albemarle Circuit Court on charges of child porn possession.

Police began investigating Walter Korte, Jr. in July, and he was arrested in August.

A trial date has been set for May 2017, but he will also be back in court in February for a motions hearing.

Korte started teaching at UVA in the 1970s. He was placed on administrative leave following his arrest and then retired from UVA effective Nov. 1.
