Former Millersville senior Robert George Kiesel, 21, was arrested on two counts of disseminating photography/film of child pornography, one count of child pornography, and two counts of criminal use of a communication facility. Kiesel was released Aug. 27 on bail of $25,000.

“At Millersville University, we expect the members of our community to uphold our EPPIIC values, both while on and off campus,” Millersville Communications Director Janet Kasckos said. “We are aware of these very disturbing charges against a student. We have no indication that this alleged illegal behavior took place while on campus or is otherwise associated with the university.”

Kiesel’s preliminary court hearing was held on Sept. 7, proctored by Magisterial District Judge Stuart J. Mylin. Kiesel was defended by attorney Daniel Clase Bardo. Kiesel was an Applied Engineering with a concentration on Robotics and Control Systems at Millersville University, according to Kiesel’s LinkedIn.
