Ex-pediatric resident accused of watching child porn at work

April 26, 2019

LEXINGTON, Ky. (AP) — A former pediatric resident at the University of Kentucky is accused of watching child porn while at work.

The Lexington Herald-Leader reports court records say 33-year-old Ryan Michael Keith was fired over the allegations and arrested on charges of possessing child pornography.

UK police Chief Joe Monroe said Thursday that the investigation into Keith has been ongoing for more than a year.

Court records say witnesses told authorities in 2017 that they saw pornographic images of children and nude photographs of Keith on his work computer.

He was fired that June and his state medical license to practice osteopathy with a specialty in pediatrics became inactive. UK police say they then searched Keith’s Google account and found a deleted file of child porn.

It’s unclear if Keith has a lawyer.
