Lewis Keith Cohen, 59, is accused of sending explicit emails and pornography to the boy. Milwaukee Police arrested Cohen in Greendale Tuesday when he showed up to a meeting the police had set up.

Cohen is a professor of Comparative Literature at the University. He is being held on $20,000 bond and is expected to be formally charged early next week.
