A former assistant scoutmaster with Ann Arbor-area Boy Scouts has been placed on probation for possessing child pornography.

The investigation began in 2010 when co-workers believed Frank Bertram Jr. was using his computer to get access to child pornography. He was a chemist for the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency.

Charges were filed in federal court last year but the case was eventually shifted to Washtenaw County court. Police found evidence of child porn on Bertram's computer in his Scio Township home.

AnnArbor.com (http://bit.ly/PNTkzO ) says the 67-year-old Bertram was sentenced to five years of probation on July 18. He told the judge he's "very sorry." He's no longer associated with the Great Sauk Trail Council of Boy Scouts in Ann Arbor.
