MOUNT PLEASANT, Mich. (AP) -

A man who taught journalism at Central Michigan University has been charged with possessing child pornography, an investigation that began when pornographic images were mistakenly displayed in class with his computer.

Mark Ranzenberger is accused of possessing 1,000 images of child porn. In a federal criminal complaint filed Thursday, Ranzenberger is quoted as telling investigators that he thought "he had gotten rid of all that stuff."

In March, he suddenly quit his job at CMU with a handwritten note. He also quit the Mount Pleasant Planning Commission.

Ranzenberger couldn't be reached for comment. A home phone is not listed.
