FLORENCE, Ala. (AP) -- A former student at the Univ. of North Alabama faces child pornography charges after the illicit material was found on a computer he shared with another student.
Authorities say 23-year-old Joshua Brett Wilbanks, a native of Corinth, Mississippi, was formally charged Monday. He was placed in the Lauderdale County Detention Center.
A university spokesman said Wilbanks was kicked out of school for violating the student code of conduct. He also is no longer permitted on school property.
Wilbanks was released from jail on a $5,000 bond.
Authorities said the case will be presented to a Lauderdale County grand jury
