UCLA's former Associate Athletic Director Michael Sondheimer has been charged with possession of child pornography.
The L.A. Couny D.A.'s Office says he's been charged with one felony county of possession -- and the porn was on his work-issued laptop.
58-year old Sondheimer resigned from his post at UCLA last year amid allegations he was having online sex chats with minors.
According to the D.A. the alleged offense occurred in April of last year. If convicted, Sondheimer faces up to 3 years in state prison.
UCLA had placed him on administrative leave in June once they got wind of the allegations. He quit a month later.
University of California Police Department is still conducting its own internal investigation.
