(BLOOMINGTON) - A former IU Ethics Director was sentenced Monday to home detention after pleading guilty to possessing child pornography.

In a negotiated plea deal, Jon T. Riveire pleaded guilty to a Level 6 felony charge of possession of child pornography. Five other felony counts of possession of child pornography were dropped.

He was sentenced to two years, with one year suspended. That year will be served on home detention. Riveire is also required to register as a sex offender.

Riveire was arrested in May 2015, 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.
