Hanover, NH – A Dartmouth College professor who was caught with an extensive collection of child pornography has been sentenced to 5 ½ years in prison.

  • J. Martin Favor, 49, was arrested last year at his Plainfield home after authorities said he uploaded four suspected images of child porn through his Tumblr account

  • His sentenced started on August 5
