A west suburban college professor whose academic research focused on children has been arrested for child pornography.

Donald Ratcliff was arrested after a nearly three month investigation by the Carol Stream police department.

The 60-year-old is a professor of Christian education at Wheaton College, an evangelical school in west suburban Wheaton.

Police say they found several images of child porn on computers seized from his Carol Stream home.

Ratcliff is expected to appear in bond court tomorrow morning.
