NASHUA — A local man will be back in court next week after a Dish Network employee discovered child pornography images on the man’s computer, authorities say.

The Union-Leader reported John Miller, 55, of 69 Crown St., has been charged with 10 counts of possessing child sexual-abuse images. The images were found by an employee of the satellite service provider who responded to Miller's camper March 22 to correct modem and Internet service problems. The employee opened Internet Explorer on Miller's computer and a website popped up which included many images of young, pre-pubescent children engaged in sexual activity with adults, The Union-Leader reported.

The employee finished the service call and went directly to Nashua Police Department to report the incident to authorities. Although Miller responded to the police station voluntarily, he could not immediately be questioned because he was allegedly intoxicated, says court documents. He was later located in Dracut, Mass., and placed under arrest. He waived extradition back to New Hampshire on March 28.

Miller was arrested and arraigned on the charges last week. He is being held on $100,000 cash-only bail, and will be back in court on April 12 for a probable-cause hearing.

According to court records, Miller has a lengthy criminal history in New Hampshire and Massachusetts. A local judge has ordered him to have no computer usage, according to his bail conditions.

If convicted of the felony offenses, Miller could face up to 15 years in prison for each charge.

Nashua police encourage anyone with information about child pornography to report it to authorities at 594-3500, or online at www.missingkids.org/CyberTipline.
