COLUMBUS, Ohio (AP) — The State Medical Board of Ohio has suspended the license of the former director of a pediatric cancer radiation unit at Ohio State University who federal prosecutors allege downloaded sexually explicit child pornography videos and photos.

Board records show Dr. Christopher Pelloski voluntarily agreed to have his license suspended indefinitely on Aug. 14.

Pelloski’s attorney didn’t immediately respond to a request for comment.

A criminal complaint filed in July in federal court charges Pelloski with a single count of receiving child pornography.

The complaint says the 39-year-old Pelloski acknowledged to a member of a Franklin County special investigations unit that he used his home desktop computer and a laptop belonging to Ohio State to download child pornography.

Pelloski directed the Pediatric Radiation Oncology Program at the university’s James Cancer Hospital.
