A former Qualcomm employee appeared in court Monday after a fellow worker reportedly found child porn on his computer.
Daniel Nemanich was arrested in his Tierrasanta home Friday after a security engineer at Qualcomm tipped FBI agents to three videos he found on Nemanich's work-issued laptop, a federal complaint stated.
The videos, found in February, depicted both girls and boys performing oral sex on adult males.
FBI agents then served a search warrant at Nemanich's home -- during which he admitted to FBI agents that he received and possessed the images, the complaint read.
After the search warrant was served Nemanich's laptop, agents then searched his home and examined two other computers and other digital devices. They found thousands of images of minors engaged in sexually explicit conduct.
Nemanich reportedly told agents that he typically downloaded the images and then deleted them.
At his hearing Monday, a federal judge set his bail at $50,000 on the condition that he submit to psychiatric counseling, participate in a computer monitoring program, and not use any social networking sites, among other conditions.
A Qualcomm spokesperson said that Nemanich no longer works for Qualcomm.
