Ex- prof gets 3 more years for probation violation
A former Wheaton College professor who was convicted of possessing child pornography in 2014 and served 3 ½ years in prison has now been sentenced to three more years for a probation violation.
Donald Ratcliff, 66, is going back to prison for downloading a movie featuring images of naked children, according to the DuPage County state’s attorney’s office.
On May 18, prosecutors filed a petition to revoke his probation, alleging he went on a website on April 23 that had “sexually stimulating images of minors,” the state’s attorney’s office said.
Ratcliff, formerly of Warrenville, was found guilty on June 8 of violating his probation, officials said.
