— A North Carolina State University student will not spend time in jail for downloading child pornography.

Wesley Mincey, 18, pleaded guilty Monday to second-degree sexual exploitation of a minor.

Investigators say Mincey used a computer in his N.C. State dorm to download pornography.

A judge gave Mincey a suspended prison sentence and 30 months of probation. He will also have to register as a sex offender.

N.C. State will allow Mincey to stay in school.
