A Hollis man has been arrested on multiple charges of child pornography after authorities allegedly found incriminating videos on his laptop.

“This defendant is alleged to have had more than a dozen disturbing videos of children being sexually abused on his computer. These cruel acts cannot and will not be tolerated in a civilized society,” said District Attorney Richard Brown.

Eduardo Medina, 35, has been charged with possessing a sexual performance by a child and promoting a sexual performance by a child, according to the district attorney’s office.

During a search of his 196th Street apartment Wednesday night, police recovered his laptop computer, various external storage media and a cell phone.  According to the charges, 14 videos of children, approximately six to twelve years old, depicted in a sexual manner or performing sexual acts, were allegedly recovered on his laptop. Those videos were supposedly downloaded onto the laptop on the afternoon of Wednesday, August 28.

Medina faces up to seven years in prison if convicted.
