Coastside man to trial for child porn
March 21, 2014, 05:00 AM Daily Journal Staff Report

Christopher O’Donnell

A Half Moon Bay man nabbed by the FBI for allegedly posting on an online site about child pornography is heading straight to trial on allegations he possessed binders and a computer containing thousands of images and 200 videos.

Christopher Mordaunt O’Donnell, 70, has pleaded not guilty to possessing child pornography and waived a preliminary hearing on the evidence which moves him directly into Superior Court. He will enter a plea there April 3 and potentially set a trial date.

O’Donnell’s alleged possession dates back to July 13, 2012, but the law only allows him to be charged with one count per reported incident.

The FBI came across O’Donnell online and through search warrants determined he was accessing the message board from his Half Moon Bay home Internet service, according to the District Attorney’s Office.

A search of his home reportedly turned up binders of child pornography and a forensic search of his computer allegedly revealed more than 2,500 illegal images and 200 videos.

O’Donnell is in custody on $200,000 bail.
