A Harvard Pediatrics Professor Was Arrested for Child Pornography


Dr. Richard Keller, a Harvard pediatrics professor and pediatric endocrinologist at Boston Children’s Hospital, was charged Thursday with receipt of child pornography for allegedly buying DVDs online “depicting minors engaged in sexually explicit conduct.” Investigators also say they found hundreds of DVDs and photographs while searching his home. We’re often warned that adults who are sexually attracted to children put themselves in positions that puts them in close contact with kids, so while pediatrics is not a terribly surprising job in which to find someone charged with collecting child pornography, it’s still unnerving.
