  • Benjamin Gran taught in the school’s information technology department and continues to draw the $48,000 annually salary despite admitting to the unspecified federal child pornography charges in September.

    An IT professional who was placed on administrative leave over federal child pornography charges, continues to receive his full salary at Green River Community College, in Auburn, Washington.

    Benjamin Gran worked in the school’s information technology department and continues to draw the $48,000 annually salary despite admitting to the unspecified federal child pornography charges in September, according to a local news outlet, Komo News.

    A spokesperson for the college, Vickie Sheehan, told Campus Reform on Monday that the school suspended Gran before his conviction and that it is now working within the constraints of the law to remove him from it's payroll.
