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.
The HSI operation led by special agents in New Haven, Connecticut revealed in 2017 that Michael Hull, 61, of Shelton, Connecticut was accessing the dark web to search for, view and download child pornography. In May 2017, HSI agents and Shelton, Connecticut Police officers conducted a court-authorized search of Hull’s Connecticut residence and seized approximately 16 electronic devices, including computers and external hard drives. Forensic analysis of the seized devices revealed 13 images and 126 videos of child pornography, including many images and videos depicting children younger than 12 engaged in sexually explicit conduct. Among the items seized were two encrypted tablets and an encrypted hard drive that could not be searched.
