ALBUQUERQUE, N.M. -- A computer donation to an Albuquerque nonprofit lands a man in jail. The Adelante Development Center regularly accepts donated electronics, but one they received this summer contained dozens of images of child pornography.

The original owner of that computer, Keith Mager faces multiple felony charges after taking his computer to the center. According to court records, Mager asked one of the nonprofit's IT supervisors to retrieve a folder from the hard drive when he dropped his computer off.

That's when the employee found about 50 pornographic images of young girls. The nonprofit then contacted authorities. Officers say when they interviewed Mager, he admitted he saved the images from the Internet and had more on his new computer.

In a statement to KOB, the Adelante Development Center said: "as a nonprofit, Adelante has a long history of supporting people in our community, but we never thought we would end up helping in this way." Center officials also said they're proud of their employees who identified the problem and immediately took action to bring justice.

Mager is facing two felony charges of sexual exploitation of children. He has been released from jail although a judge ordered him not to possess or use computers.
