Former WNMU-FM employee arrested on alleged child sexually abusive material charges


A former NMU employee was arrested earlier this week for using a work computer to download and view child pornography, Michigan State
Police (MSP) officials said.

The MSP Computer Crimes Unit and the Internet Crimes Against Children (ICAC) Task Force,  announced in a press release on Wednesday the arrest of Stan Henry Wright, 58 of Negaunee, following an investigation into his online activity.

The investigation revealed that Wright was using a work computer to download and view the material. Officials say the evidence was located on the computer.

Wright was arraigned on eight counts of possession of child sexually abusive material earlier this afternoon. His bond was set at $400,000.

NMU officials fully cooperated with the investigation. There is nothing to suggest any students were victimized.
