LINCOLN, Neb. (AP) — The son of a former University of Nebraska athletic director has been charged with producing child pornography.

The Lincoln Journal Star reports that 18-year-old Jack Eichorst appeared Friday in Lancaster County Court on Friday, where a judge allowed Eichorst to be released on a personal recognizance bond.

Eichorst had been arrested last year on suspicion of the sexual assault of two minors, but prosecutors opted not to bring that charge. Eichorst's attorney, Sean Brennan, says Eichorst is autistic and that his level of sophistication and maturity is well below that of an 18-year-old.

Eichorst is the son of former University of Nebraska Athletic Director Shawn Eichorst, who was fired Sept. 21 after a five-year stint on the job.
