ALBEMARLE COUNTY, Va. (WVIR) - A former University Of Virginia professor who pled guilty to two counts of child pornography will now serve the rest of his sentence at home.

In October 2018, 75-year-old Walter Francis Korte Jr. was sentenced to 12 months in prison.

On Monday, the defense argued the defendant's age and lack of prior offenses is cause for him to serve the remainder of his sentence at home with an electronic monitoring device.

The judge agreed with the defense and ordered Francis Korte to report immediately to probation and attend therapy sessions.
