    A pediatrician from northwest Montgomery County was charged with allegedly possessing several images of child pornography on a cell phone that belonged to his medical practice, authorities said Wednesday.

    David Kennedy, 48, of Pennsburg, was arrested this week after a nurse practitioner at Personal Care Pediatrics in Pennsburg allegedly found images on a cell phone she was given to answer any emergency calls for the practice during the Thanksgiving weekend, the Montgomery County District Attorney’s office said.

    While using the phone over the holiday weekend, she allegedly found the sexually graphic photographs of children and other sexual images, authorities said.

    “The investigation revealed that the images belonged to Kennedy,” the DA said in a joint statement with Upper Perkiomen Police Department.

    Kennedy was charged with five counts of sexual abuse of children and criminal use of a communications facility. He was arraigned on $250,000 bail and sent to the Montgomery County Correctional Facility.

    The Pennsylvania State Board of Medicine immediately issued a temporary suspension of Kennedy's license.
