NEW LONDON, Conn. (CBSNewYork/AP) – A Connecticut father and son have pleaded not guilty to possession of child pornography.

Brian Faford, 25, and 57-year-old Donald Faford, both of East Lyme, were each released on $75,000 bond after their appearance in court in New London on Tuesday, according to the Day of New London.

Police say the elder Faford told detectives he had found pornography on his son’s computer account and saved it to his own account.

Computers seized from the home contained hundreds of images and videos of suspected child pornography, police said.

At the time of their arrests, the Fafords waived their rights and spoke to a detective about the files that were found. Brian Faford admitted he’s been viewing porn since he was 12 or 13 years old, the Day of New London reported.

According to Donald Faford’s court file, he is an engineer for Connecticut Light & Power.

At his lawyer’s request, Brian Faford is permitted by the judge to use a word processing program for school and use his mother’s computer to access two websites needed for his coursework.

The computer is subject to searches by the probation department.
