Safety director fired after child porn charge

Posted at 3:56 PM, Jan 28, 2016

CRESTVIEW HILLS, Ky. – Thomas More College parted ways with its public safety director, who was indicted on charges of possessing child porn this week.

College President David Armstrong announced in an email Thursday that they had terminated Robert Marshall’s employment.

A grand jury indicted Marshall, 52, on 36 counts of possessing/viewing matter portraying sexual performance by a minor Wednesday. Covington police said they had been investing Marshall since January of 2014.

All that time, the college “had absolutely no prior knowledge of this investigation,” Armstrong wrote.

The college first hired Marshall in 1999. His bio on the college’s website stated he was made safety director in 2003.

Police said the child porn was on Marshall’s home computer.

“At no time have investigating officers called into question Thomas More College or Marshall’s role as campus safety director,” Armstrong wrote. “To make any conjecture or speculation between Marshall’s role on our campus and the current charges is unfounded and inappropriate.”
