A graduate student at Northern Illinois University is facing charges of child pornography.

Michael Rydell, 26, could spend up to 15 years in prison if convicted of distributing child porn.

Rydell is being prevented from entering the NIU campus.

DeKalb police were led to Rydell during an undercover investigation last month. He was arrested after authorities searched his home.
