DENVER — A former Denver firefighter has been charged with possession of child pornography.

Mark Jacobson, 53, is accused of having sexually exploitive photos and videos on his cellphone, according to the Denver District Attorney’s Office.

Jacobson allegedly viewed the material while he was at work in July.

The district attorney’s office said an internet hosting company suspected its service was being used to host images of child pornography and submitted a report to the National Center for Missing and Exploited Children.

Jacobson was arrested on Valentine’s Day. He is charged with two felony counts of sexual exploitation of a child.

He posted bond and is scheduled to appear in court on March 21.
