A veteran Waltham police officer who won $1 million in the lottery two years ago is facing federal child pornography charges.

    During an initial appearance Tuesday, Paul Manganelli was ordered held until a detention hearing Thursday. His lawyer didn't comment after the hearing.

    Manganelli was arrested by the FBI Monday at his Waltham home after agents allegedly learned he'd been sending and receiving images of child pornography.

    The 46-year-old Manganelli has been a Waltham officer for 20 years. He's also a disc jockey at a company he started with a friend in the 1980s, which advertises work for kids' and teens' parties.

    In 2011, Manganelli claimed $1 million on a winning lottery ticket.

    Waltham Mayor Jeannette McCarthy called the allegations against Mangan ``disgusting,'' but said the charges shouldn't tarnish other officers.  (Associated Press)
