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.
