MIDDLE SMITHFIELD TOWNSHIP, Pa. (WNEP) -- Richard Feely is behind bars on child porn charges.

According to court paperwork, he was busted by his own family. His adult stepson was visiting his parents for Christmas at their home near Marshalls Creek.

He needed to print a receipt for a Christmas gift. While hooking up his parents’ computer to a printer he found a folder labeled “Rich” with file names and thumbnail images that appeared to be pornographic.

The man and his mother went to state police late Christmas night. Troopers later searched the computer and found dozens of videos containing child porn.

They arrested Feely at the Monroe County 911 Center, where he worked as a dispatcher.

The director of the Monroe County 911 Center director said Feely was employed as a full-time dispatcher and he’s worked there for nearly 20 years.

All computers at the facility have now been checked for pornographic material.

Richard Feely was charged with five counts of possession of child pornography and five counts of criminal use of a communication facility, WFMZ reports.
