A Radford University criminal justice professor indicted on drug charges earlier this month now faces charges of possession of child pornography.

According to Radford City Police Lt. Andy Wilburn, Taj Mahon-Haft was arrested without incident today at his Radford home. Mahon-Haft is being held at New River Valley Regional Jail in lieu of $10,000 secured bond.

Mahon-Haft is charged with 24 counts of having child pornography as a result of information allegedly found on computers seized from his home in December. The computers were examined by the Virginia State Police High Tech Crimes Division in relation to the drug charges handed down by a Radford grand jury.

Wilburn said Mahon-Haft was released on unsecured bond on the drug charges before being re-arrested today. He was indicted on three counts of possession of a Schedule I drug and one count of possession of marijuana.
