SPRINGFIELD, Mich. (WOOD) — A former Battle Creek school board member arrested on child pornography charges has taken a plea deal.

Eric Jankowski appeared in court Monday where he pleaded guilty to possessing child porn. In exchange for his plea, authorities dismissed a felony charge of using a computer to commit a crime.

Jankowski was arrested after investigators learned child pornography was being uploaded to cloud accounts on the internet. A search of his home turned up digital evidence.

Jankowski resigned from the Battle Creek school board in December, a position he was elected to in 2017.
