Attleboro man charged with child pornography

An Attleboro man was charged with possession of child pornography, the U.S. attorney for Massachusetts said Monday.

Prosecutors said Michael Paterson, 53, is the office manager of a sober house in Attleboro. He is being held until a hearing Friday in Worcester.

The U.S. attorney said a resident of the sober house saw Paterson looking at child pornography on two occasions.

Prosecutors said a search of the house turned up computers, hard drives, thumb drives, CDs, DVDs and printers containing images of children being sexually exploited. Investigators also seized a stun gun and about $70,000.

More images and $1,500 were found in Paterson's car, prosecutors said.
