A 66-year-old San Francisco attorney was arrested on suspicion of uploading and distributing graphic videos and photos of child pornography, officials said Tuesday.

Michael Connell was booked on Thursday at the San Francisco County Jail after investigators served a search warrant at his home on the 1700 block of 23rd Avenue, according to the San Francisco Police Department.

During the search, officers seized a laptop that had child pornography images and videos on it, police said.

The police department’s Internet Crimes against Children Unit began investigating Connell in August after learning he was using a chat messenger application to trade child pornography, police said.
