A former University of Georgia professor was recently indicted in federal court for allegedly producing child pornography and related offenses.

According to the five-count indictment filed June 18 in U.S. District Court in Athens, James Edward Monogan III in March 2019 “attempted to and did employ, use, induce, entice, and coerce a minor, B.D., to engage in sexually explicit conduct for the purpose of producing a visual depiction of such conduct, which...was produced and transported using materials that had been mailed, shipped and transported in interstate and foreign commerce.”

The former political science professor resigned from UGA’s School of Public and International Affairs resigned in September while he was being investigated by the U.S. Department of Homeland Security.

The indictment also charges Monogan with three counts of receipt and distribution of child porn and one count of possessing child porn for allegedly being in possession of images that depicted two victims, one described in the indictment as being prepubescent, and the other a child younger than 12 years old.

The indictment accuses Monogan of sending child pornography to three unidentified persons via Kik, an instant messaging app that preserves user anonymity.
