Ex-JSU assistant professor to serve 5 years on child porn charge

Posted: Updated:
BIRMINGHAM, AL -

A former Jacksonville State University assistant professor will spend five years in prison after pleading guilty to child pornography charges in January.

Jonathan Mark Herbert, 39, of Jacksonville was charged with attempting to receive child porn in August 2012. Authorities say he attempted to receive images of what he thought was a 14-year-old girl, but was actually an undercover police officer. 

He also drove to a Birmingham shopping center to meet the "teenage girl" for sex.

After his release, Herbert will be required to register as a sex offender and serve 10 years of probation.
