Kenneth Kyle, the Cal State East Bay professor arrested earlier this month at San Francisco International Airport on child porn charges, will be arraigned this morning at San Francisco's Hall of Justice. The 47-year-old is facing felony charges of child pornography possession and child exploitation.

Kyle was arrested after returning to the Bay Area from Austria last week after an FBI operation tracking file-sharing of photos depicting children being sexually abused purportedly pinpointed the professor's home.

His scheduled March 19 arraignment was postponed until today. While free on $55,000 bail in the interim, he was arrested by the FBI once more on additional porn possession charges, according to the San Francisco District Attorney's office. He remains in federal custody.

According to Kyle's faculty bio, his "teaching and research interests revolve around the application of

critical theories such as Critical Literary Theory, Feminism(s),

Frankfurt School Critical Theory, Marxism, etc., to specific social

problems and public policies." He is widely published in "academic

journals ranging from Social Justice to Humanity & Society to the

Journal of Primary Preventions."

In 2005, he published his first book: Contextualizing Homelessness: Critical Theory,

Homelessness, and Federal Policy Addressing the Homeless.

  • clipping at Brava Theater Sept. 11
    Sub Pop recording artists 'clipping.' brought their brand of noise-driven experimental hip hop to the closing night of 2016's San Francisco Electronic Music Fest this past Sunday. The packed Brava Theater hosted an initially seated crowd that ended the night jumping and dancing against the front of the stage. The trio performed a set focused on their recently released Sci-Fi Horror concept album, 'Splendor & Misery', then delved into their dancier and more aggressive back catalogue, and recent single 'Wriggle'. Opening performances included local experimental electronic duo 'Tujurikkuja' and computer music artist 'Madalyn Merkey.'"
