A Lehigh County teen convicted of downloading child porn will have his juvenile criminal record follow him to college, according to a court ruling.
A Pa. Superior Court judge says Temple University should be informed of the misdemeanor, which took place while the student was in high school, according to a WHYY report.
The teen's attorney has the right to ask for another review of the controversial ruling.

The teen in question was also found guilty of one count of sexual abuse of children, according to Phillyburbs.com.
The Phillyburbs report says this ruling will open many questions about who juvenile probation officers are required to contact - what happens when a student tranfers from one school to another or takes online classes?
The Court issued this statement on the case, according to NBC 10:
"We cannot conclude that a child who is adjudicated delinquent of a felony presents a danger to elementary, middle and high school students, but ceases to present a danger once the delinquent child enrolls in college."
