A Connecticut man was sentenced June 8 in federal court to five years in federal prison and five years of supervised release for possessing child pornography, after his conviction in a ‘Dark Web’ investigation led by U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement’s Homeland Security Investigations (HSI), New Haven, Connecticut.
