An 80-year-old Freeport Man Has Been Charged With Child Pornography

Authorities say there's no evidence that Abraham Koppell has had any inappropriate relationships with children at an elementary school where he did volunteer work.

He was charged March 1 with 149 counts of possessing child pornography and one count of obtaining the material.

Koppell had been working with first through fourth graders as a reading volunteer. He also volunteered at the Bay Early Education Center.

A technician found the alleged pornography on Koppell's home computer after he dropped it off to have a larger hard drive installed.

He's scheduled to enter a plea April 19.

Kopell is charged with a possession count for each image found on his computer.
