The attorney for an EMT arrested for having child pornography has questions about the charges.
On March 6, Corey MacDonald, 28, was arrested at the pool on the Westminster School Campus in Simsbury. He was charged with third-degree illegal possession of child pornography.
MacDonald was previously arrested on a voyeurism charge on April 10, 2009. The charges stem from allegations that he was spying on a roommate with a video camera, while he was living in West Hartford, according to court documents.
During that investigation, MacDonald's computer was seized.
West Hartford investigators got the lab results back earlier this month, they said the way the children were photographed fit the definition of child pornography in Connecticut.
West Hartford officers said they found 13 photos of naked children in sexually explicit positions on MacDonald's computer.
MacDonald told police that they "were only the type found at nudist colonies and not child pornography."
MacDonald's attorney William Gerace told Eyewitness News, while he has not seen the evidence yet, "It remains unclear whether the images MacDonald has on the computer can be considered child pornography."
Last week, the town of Vernon severed ties with MacDonald, who had been an EMT there for about two years.
In the past, he has been an EMT in Bloomfield, Windsor and American Medical Response in West Hartford.
Police said MacDonald also works at the pool on the Westminster School Campus in Simsbury, the company that runs the pool refused to clarify what MacDonald does there.
