An Albemarle County grand jury will hear the child pornography case against a long-time University of Virginia professor.

Seventy-two-year-old Walter Korte waived his right to a preliminary hearing Monday morning in Albemarle County Juvenile and Domestic Relations Court.

He is charged with possessing child pornography after the UVA police searched his Bryan Hall office and Albemarle County home.

The film studies professor has been on administrative leave since his arrest in August.
