FRAMINGHAM, Mass. (AP) – A pediatric dentist with an office in Framingham has been charged with possession of child pornography.

Authorities say the images were found on 52-year-old Melvin Ehrlich's laptop computer after he sent it in for service. The person performing the service found the images and informed police.

Ehrlich, a Millis resident, is scheduled to be arraigned Thursday in Framingham District Court.

Prosecutors say Ehrlich used this laptop computer under various user names to download and distribute commercially traded child pornography images.

Authorities say Ehrlich operates a business called Wee Care for Kids in Framingham. There is currently no evidence that any of his patients were abused.

Ehrlich could not immediately be reached.
