Tolland doctor faces sentencing for child porn

A family doctor from Tolland, Conn., faces sentencing for possessing child pornography after admitting he used a file-sharing service to trade thousands of images and videos. Dr. Carl Koplin, who is scheduled to be sentenced Thursday in Hartford, pleaded guilty last year to receipt of child pornography. Prosecutors say investigators were able to download about 300 images and videos of child porn from an Internet directory traced to Koplin’s computer. They say the FBI seized Koplin’s desktop computer and other storage media in July 2010, and found 800 gigabytes of child porn. Koplin faces a minimum of five years in prison. Before his arrest, Koplin served on the medical advisory board for the state Department of Motor Vehicles. His attorney said he is remorseful and in treatment. (AP)
