Dr. Burton Moore was scheduled to be arraigned Wednesday, but it was postponed to November 19. Moore is charged with ten counts of child pornography possession after police found images on his office computer.

Moore can still practice independently until his case is decided, but all of his privileges at Rockford's three hospitals have been suspended pending the outcome of the trial.

If convicted, 57-year-old Moore could face up to five years in jail.
