Former Springfield College employee pleads guilty to child porn charges

Posted: Updated:
SPRINGFIELD, MA (WSHM) -

A Granby man who worked in Springfield College's information technology department has pleaded guilty to child pornography charges and to using his position to illegally access students' computers and email accounts to steal private photos.

Prosecutors say 39-year-old David Linnehan had nearly one million child pornography images on computers, hard drives, and other electronic devices he owned.

Authorities say Linnehan is also responsible for the creation of child pornography by encouraging a California woman to send him nude pictures of her young daughter.

He pleaded guilty to more than 30 charges.

He is scheduled to be sentenced on February 20.
