NORTH WALES, Pa. (WPVI) -- A Montgomery County attorney has been arrested for allegedly possessing hundreds of images of child pornography.

George Bock Ditter of Perkiomenville was arraigned Tuesday on charges of sexual abuse of children and criminal use of a communication facility.

Ditter is accused of using a work computer at his law office in North Wales to view pictures of underage children performing sex acts.

Investigators said they found 24,000 image searches on the computer.

The Montgomery County district attorney said Ditter told a colleague he was doing research for a "sexually graphic novel" he was writing.
