The Knucklehead of the Day award
Today's winner is Andrew Erickson. He gets the award for the following.
FALL RIVER - A college student who mistakenly submitted a compact disc loaded with child pornography images to his professor last week is now facing felony kiddie porn possession charges.Somehow I don't think Mr. Erickson got a passing grade in that class, but Andrew Erickson will get the next best thing. He is today's Knucklehead of the Day.
Andrew Erickson, 18, of 57 Lee's River Ave., Swansea, was arrested by Fall River and Swansea police late last week. He has pleaded not guilty to the charge and was released after a family member posted his $500 cash bail.
The Bristol Community College student was to submit his computer information systems final examination on compact disc last week.
But instead of submitting the class work, Erickson allegedly handed in a disc that contained images of children as young as 7-years-old in sexually explicit situations. The disc, according to police reports, listed each youth by age, ranging from 7 to 14.
The professor opened the compact disc while at home last week, and upon realizing what was on the disc, turned it over to Wayne Wood, BCC's director of public safety.
