UConn football player arrested on child pornography charges

New, comments

Very disturbing news today out of Storrs as freshman offensive tackle Gregory McKee has been arrested on child pornography charges. The Courant has the details, and it's all rather disturbing:

State police said they found videos on McKee's computer of children ranging in age from 8 to 15 engaging in sexual activity, and that there was evidence that he had transmitted the videos to others on the Internet.

McKee admitted to police that he uploaded the videos, but he said someone he met online was supposed to pay him for posting them. McKee claims he was never paid.

He told police he had about 20 videos and 20 pictures of child pornography on his laptop.

McKee, who did not play in any games for the Huskies this season, is being held on a $75,000 bond has been suspended from the team indefinitely. We'll update you as we get more details, but this is obviously a very sad story and it certainly puts a damper on all the good feelings that have surrounded the football team in the past few days.
