BURBANK -- A 34-year-old Burbank man pleaded not guilty Thursday in

Pomona Superior Court on suspicion of possessing child pornography on his

home computer, authorities said.

Russell Allan Noriega's home computer was allegedly found by Los

Angeles County sheriff's investigators on July 24 to contain numerous

items of child pornography downloadedfrom the Internet, said Deputy Dist.

Atty. Kim Santini.

Earlier in July, Noriega pleaded not guilty to three charges of lewd

conduct after he allegedly approached three girls -- 7, 9 and 10 -- at a

park ride July 8 at Raging Waters, a water theme park in San Dimas.

Noriega allegedly told the girls he was a photographer who took

pictures of models and that he wanted to take photographs of the girls

with his video camera, Santini said.

An alleged 45 minutes of tape from the man's camera showed close ups

of the girls' crotches, and he is also alleged to have put his fingers

under the elastic banding of the girls' suits and touched their skin,

Santini said.
