Former Missouri S and T Officer Pleads Guilty To Child Porn Possession
Neil Outar

A 44-year-old Rolla man has pleaded guilty to the possession of child pornography. Neil Anthony Outar, a former officer at Missouri University of Science and Technology, will be sentenced in March of next year and could face up to 20 years in prison, a $250,000 fine, or both.

The Phelps County Sheriff’s Department got a tip that child pornography was being uploaded to a Gmail account used by Outar.

Investigators traced the IP address to the university in Rolla and then to Outar.

Outar was the school’s chief diversity officer until he was terminated in February 2021. After a search of his home and office last year, authorities found evidence of pornographic images in two of Outar’s email accounts. They discovered that pornographic images had been deleted from his home and work computers.
