Bridgewater State University is still responding to the aftermath since Thomas Masse, a freshman at BSU, is being charged with possession of child pornography and distribution of a child in the nude.

Court records show that Masse accessed this material using apps such as Tumblr and Kik. Masse would then delete apps after accessing the material.

He is expected back in court for a probable cause hearing on Dec 28.

The investigation at Bridgewater State University still continues.

Steven Vincent, New Bedford Police Captain stated, “We are assisting BSU campus police in any way we can.”

According to the Patriot Ledger, BSU spokeswoman Eva Gaffney stated, “There is no evidence that he used the university’s computer network.”

Masse pleaded not guilty at his arraignment in Brockton District Court. He paid $1,000 bail at the BSU police station to be released

Masse was released on personal recognizance. He is to stay away from and have no contact with children under the age of 16. Masse also cannot engage in employment or volunteer work where there are children under the age of 16. Masse cannot have Internet access, use any electronic devices and possess or use any smart phones.
