ANCHORAGE, Alaska (AP) - A former astronomy and physics instructor at the University of Alaska Anchorage has pleaded not guilty to 14 child pornography charges.

KTUU reports (https://is.gd/clVWio) Curtis Osterhoudt was arraigned Wednesday shortly after surrendering to authorities. Bail was set at $100,000.

Online court records didn’t list an attorney for him.

The 37-year-old Osterhoudt was indicated by an Anchorage grand jury on 10 counts of possession child porn and four counts of distribution. Authorities say the counts cover alleged activities at his home and UAA office.

UAA listed him as an assistant professor of physics and astronomy from Aug. 12, 2012 until his resignation on Jan. 9, 2014.

If convicted, he faces a sentencing range on each count of 2-12 years, with a maximum sentence of 99 years.
