Ex-Phillips Academy doctor faces more child porn counts


The Eagle-Tribune

---- — BOSTON (AP) — The former medical director of Phillips Academy prep school is facing arraignment in federal court today on new child pornography charges.

Fifty-six-year-old Richard Keller of Andover was indicted last week on two counts of receiving child pornography and one count of possessing child pornography. The indictment charges Keller possessed depictions of minors in sexually explicit conduct, including boys from about 7 to 16 years old. His lawyer couldn't be reached for comment on the new charges.

Keller is to appear this afternoon in federal court in Boston.

He was arrested in September on a charge of receiving child pornography and waived his right to a probable cause hearing. Authorities alleged he'd had child porn delivered to him at the prep school campus before his 2011 resignation.

Keller worked at Boston Children's Hospital and taught at Harvard Medical School.
