Feds indict retired Citadel professor on child porn charges

Posted: Updated:
CHARLESTON, SC (WCSC) -

A retired Citadel professor has been formally indicted on federal child porn charges.

According to federal court documents filed Tuesday, 70-year-old Richard Thaddeus Pokryfka distributing child porn and possessing child porn.

Pokryfka was arrested at his James Island home in mid-June following an investigation by the Department of Homeland Security. Investigators say Pokryfka sent them four different videos of children performing a variety of sex acts with adults.

He was charged with three counts of second-degree sexual exploitation of a minor, and one count of third-degree sexual exploitation of a minor.

Pokryfka is scheduled to appear in federal court later this month for arraignment. He attained the title of Professor Emeritus at The Citadel’s School of Business Administration Leadership. He taught at the school from August of 1975 to January 2007.

He also served as a captain in the United States Navy.
