UVA Student Pleads Guilty to Child Porn Charges

Posted: Updated:

A University of Virginia student admits he is guilty of child porn charges. Ralph Samuel Rogers pleaded guilty Wednesday to 10 counts of possessing child pornography.

Rogers was supposed to have a trial Wednesday morning, but that did not happen.  Instead of the trial, Rogers entered into a guilty plea at Albemarle County Circuit Court.

Investigators searched his Lambeth Field dorm back in December and seized a computer and other electronic devices.  Rogers was arrested at his dorm at UVA.

He is a rising third-year engineering student.

Rogers will be officially sentenced on January 8.  He faces up to 50 years in prison.
