Jackson Memorial employee Thomas Mahon of Miami, Florida was arrested on August 15 after he repeatedly attempted to view child pornography on a hospital computer.
Mahon, 61, faces charges for attempting to transmit child pornography and has reportedly posted bail. It is unclear if he has obtained legal representation.
According to the police report, the alleged searches were performed at Jackson Memorial Hospital in January last year. Mahon allegedly searched for child pornography on a hospital computer using the credentials of another employee who had neglected to log off his work account. His searches were blocked by the hospital’s internal computer security systems.
