CRESTVIEW HILLS, Ky. ― The director of campus safety at Thomas More College has been fired following his indictment on child pornography charges.

The Kentucky Enquirer reports school officials announced Thursday in a news release the firing of 53-year-old Robert Marshall.

Marshall was arrested Wednesday after a year-long investigation. Covington police say he has been indicted on 36 counts of possession of matter portraying a sexual performance by a minor.

Thomas More College President David Armstrong says the school had no prior knowledge of the investigation and first became aware of it Wednesday.

Police say the investigation into Marshall began in January 2014 after a witness reported that the material was on Marshall’s home computer.

Marshall had worked at the college since 1999. It isn’t immediately clear if he has an attorney.
