Aggie Cadet Arrested for Child Porn

By  | 

A former member of the Texas A&M corps of cadets has been arrested and charged with 10 counts of possession of child pornography.

Rolando Patlan, 20, surrendered to authorities Tuesday after Texas A&M University Police secured an arrest warrant.

Investigators accuse Patlan of downloading child pornography on a dorm computer that was shared by his fellow cadets. One of those cadets apparently stumbled upon the explicit materials and alerted superiors. Police then obtained a search warrant and seized the computer on November 15.

Patlan has since resigned from the corps and moved off campus.

Bond is expected to be set Wednesday.
