MISSOULA -

A Missoula psychologist has been charged with sexual abuse of children. 

Dr. Jay Palmatier is accused of possessing and uploading child pornography. 

Employees of Google Incorporated found an image on a Gmail account that could be classified as child pornography. Google informed the National Center of Missing and Exploited Children of their findings, who then passed the information to the Missoula Police Department. 

Police were able to link the account to Palmatier, and according to court documents, later admitted to possessing the image. 

Palmatier faces up to 10 years in prison if convicted, and has since been released on his own recognizance.
