BOSTON — A University of Utah professor was arrested on Saturday after being accused of watching child porn on his laptop while on a Delta flight from Utah to Boston.

A passenger sitting behind 47-year-old Grant D. Smith, a professor of material science and engineering, witnessed Smith watching the alleged child porn and took a picture of him with their cell phone while also notifying the flight crew.

Once the plane landed at Boston Logan International Airport, police were waiting for Smith and asked to see his laptop. After a bit of searching, police say they discovered “disturbing images of child pornography.”

Smith was arrested and charged with possession of child pornography. Instead of attending  a conference for the Material Research Society, the father of two was placed in jail on a $15,000 bond and was still there as of this morning. The university has placed him on administrative leave, stating he would be fired if the allegations turned out to be true.

If the accusations are true, and Smith was watching child porn on a laptop while in the first class section of a Delta airplane, then he’s definitely one of the dumber criminals we have ever posted about on this site. I cannot wait to see what his defense is.
