Internet Security Threat Report 2014

Yale University geology and geophysics professor Antonio Lasaga was today indicted on multiple charges of disseminating kiddie porn via the Internet. The charges stated Lasaga had received thousands of images of child pornography over a one-year period, and that he was in possession of floppy disks, a hard disk and two videotapes containing that kind of offensive material. The charges stemmed from an FBI investigation begun after the agency received complaints about Lasaga. The investigation culminated in Lasaga's arrest last November. Lasaga's case must now go to trial, where he will plead innocent. If convicted, however, he is likely to be banged up for a total of 75 years, followed by three years' supervised release and fines of up to $2 million. Lasaga is 49 years old. ®
