CLAREMONT — A Dartmouth College professor has been arrested on charges of possessing videos containing images of child sex abuse.

The Valley News reports that 49-year-old J. Martin Favor was released on personal recognizance bail of $10,000 after a court hearing on Friday. No plea was entered. He was arrested at his Plainfield, New Hampshire, home on Thursday.

His attorney declined to comment on the allegations.

Dartmouth says Martin has been placed on paid administrative leave and banned from campus.

The English and African Studies professor has worked at the school for 22 years and formerly chaired the African-American studies department.
