Former IU Ethics Director To Plead Guilty To Possession Of Child Pornography

Last updated on Thursday, December 1, 2016

(BLOOMINGTON) - A Bloomington man will plead guilty in a negotiated plea agreement to a charge of possession of child pornography.

Former IU Ethics Director Jon Riveire was arrested after police found photos of a sex act between an adult man and a girl (between the ages of 3 and 5) in Riveire's email. After obtaining a search warrant, they reported finding 30 additional images of child pornography on Riveire's IU-issued computer.

He had worked at IU since 2007, first as a residence hall director and was the assistant director for student conduct at IU's Office of Student Ethics when he was terminated by the university after his arrest in May 2015 when he was charged with six felony counts of possession of child pornography.

According to court records, Riveire has agreed to plead guilty to one of the charges, with the others being dismissed. Monroe Circuit Court Judge Marc Kellams has taken the agreement under advisement.

Riveire must undergo a psychosexual evaluation at his own expense before the sentencing hearing on January 30.
