UConn lineman suspended after arrest on child porn charges

UConn logo

Yesterday evening, UConn sent out a terse 26-word press release announcing that freshman offensive tackle Greg McKee had been suspended from the team indefinitely and the school would have no further comment on the matter.

Based on a story in today’s Hartford Courant, we can understand exactly why they would not want to address it publicly.

According to the paper, McKee has been charged with importing child pornography, obscenity and promoting a minor in an obscene performance.  McKee turned himself in after becoming aware that a warrant for his arrest had been issued.  Bail has been set at $75,000 and the lineman is set to be arraigned Wednesday.

State police said their computer crimes unit received information in September about possible possession and distribution of child pornography.

Detectives executed a search and seizure warrant in November at McKee’s dorm room at Rosebrooks Hall, state police said. Items of evidence were seized during that search and were examined, state police said.

Suffice to say, and based on the charges, it appears likely you won’t see the former three-star recruit in a Huskies uniform in the very near future.  Or ever again, for that matter.

    I can only hope he was just sexting with a one-year-younger HS girlfriend or something. Otherwise this guy’s going down the river.

    cowboys4life, I’d like you to explain what this fellow’s off-the-field issues have to do with UConn’s spot in a BCS bowl game. While the Big East was down this season and none of their teams truly deserve to go to a BCS bowl, it’s ignorant for anyone to associate one player’s apparent predilections with the rest of the team’s supposed worthiness. If that’s the rubric against which all teams are graded, then cancel the MNC game due to laptop thievery and domestic violence. Auburn and Oregon will be glad to hear that, I’m sure.

    @inconsonance

    Do you feel better after that? That response might have been worse than my SARCASTIC post.

    No, I don’t feel better, mainly because you’ve no concept of sarcasm. It greatly pains me to know that not only are there such woefully misinformed people roaming the Earth, but I interacted with one. It feels dirty.
