The trial for a man who allegedly uploaded child pornography in the UI Main Library has been reset.

Martin Jackson, 41, will go to trial Feb. 16, 2010. His pretrial conference is set for Feb. 3.

Jackson is charged with four counts of possession of materials exploiting minors.

In June 2008, workers at the social-networking site ning.com told police they suspected someone with the user name “Martin” posted child pornography to the site, authorities said.

According to UI police, backtracking the e-mail address led to Jackson, and investigations showed Jackson was logged onto a computer in the Main Library when both sets of images were posted.

Library employees contacted police when they saw Jackson had returned to the building, officers said.

Jackson has a criminal record dating back nearly 20 years, including lascivious acts with a child, assault, and first-degree harassment.
