MUNCIE, Ind. -- A second Ball State University employee has been arrested in connection with a child pornography investigation.

Math instructor Brian K. Siebenaler was arrested Friday on possession of child pornography charges stemming from an investigation by the Indiana State Police Cyber Crime Unit.

Siebenaler had worked for Ball State since 1992, but was not currently teaching any classes.

The arrest comes after a review of the school's computer network flagged another employee last month – maintenance supervisor Randal R. Schmidt – for accessing sexually explicit images of children.
