NEW ORLEANS, LA (WWL-TV) -

According to WWL-TV in New Orleans, the vice president of the Entergy Technology company was arrested and charged with possessing pornography involving juveniles. Entergy discovered he was downloading child pornography on his office computer.

Earl Frederic, Jr., 66, was arrested Wednesday.

According to WWL-TV, "At the time of his arrest, Frederic was the vice president of the Entergy Technology company, a subsidiary of Entergy Corporation, headquartered in New Orleans."

Once Entergy discovered that Frederic was downloading the child porn, they notified police, according to NOPD.

The arrest report states, "the computer was receiving and transmitting mass downloads from child pornography web sites," according to WWL-TV.

A warrant was obtained for Frederic's office. His computer was confiscated along with several thumb drives.  A search warrant was also obtained for his home and investigators confiscated more evidence of child pornography.

Entergy released a statement on the arrest: "These are extremely disturbing allegations, and the company is fully cooperating with authorities in their investigation. Entergy's internal monitoring software detected potentially inappropriate computer-related activity by an employee, and the company immediately alerted the New Orleans Police Department. Pending further investigation, the employee has been suspended, and his access to Entergy facilities and computer systems has been revoked."

He posted a $25,000 bond and was released.
