WESTON, Fla. – A South Florida attorney is accused of downloading child pornography on his home computer.

Mark Greenberg, 62, of Weston, was arrested Tuesday on 10 counts of possession of child pornography, one count of using a computer to compile child pornography and one count of promoting the sexual performance of a child.

According to a Broward Sheriff's Office report, Greenberg was sharing child porn on the Internet between February 2014 and March 2015.

The IP address used to transmit the child porn was traced to Greenberg's home in Weston, the report said.

A search warrant was executed Tuesday at his home, where authorities found 10 videos of children engaging in sex acts with adults and other children, the report said.

During an interview with detectives, Greenberg admitted that he was downloading child porn and "understood that the files he downloads are then shared with others," the report said.
