Milford Man Pleads Guilty to Child Pornography Crime

Analysis of Rolan Sosa's seized computer revealed 110 images and 134 video files of child pornography, according to the U.S. Attorney's office.

A Milford man pleaded guilty to one count of receipt of child pornography in U.S. District Court in Hartford on Tuesday, October 9th. 

According to court documents and statements made in court, on November 16th, 2011, detectives assigned to the Connecticut Computer Crimes Task Force in New Haven logged into a public available Internet file sharing program and downloaded 14 images of child pornography from a shared directory maintained by Rolan Sosa, age 36, of Milford.

On December 15th, 2011, Sosa was arrested at his residence in Milford.

Subsequent analysis of Sosa's seized laptop computer revealed 110 images and 134 video files of child pornography.

Included in Sosa's collection of child pornography were images of children under the age of 12 engaged in sexually explicitly conduct.

Forensic review also revealed that Sosa distributed child pornography images and videos through the file sharing program located on his computer.

Sentencing has been scheduled for January 3rd, 2012, at which time Sosa faces a mandatory minimum term of imprisonment of five years, a maximum term of imprisonment of 20 years, and a fine of up to $250,000.

How anyone can enjoy watching children engage in sexual activities is beyond me--truly sickening..Thank God they caught this guy before his antics escalated into actually molesting children himself. I wish all the pedophiles of Milford would float off to a deserted island--. FYI everyone--there are currently 26 registered sex offenders lurking around your neighborhoods.....There is a website called familywatchdog where you can input info and they will send you e-mail alerts everytime an offender moves to your area--be informed! The latest pedophile, Donald Grady was sentenced to 30 years--good job Milford! we need to make Milford a pedophile free city

Is he only being charged with one count of receiving child pornography? It seems like he should be charged with a lot more.

The scariest thing is that most victims know their molesters. They are not only faceless people on the internet. They are our family. Fathers, brothers, sons, uncles, etc. They are our elected officials. Senators, congressmen, mayors, etc. They are our public servants. Policemen, firemen, etc. They are the people we trust around our children. Clergymen, scout leaders, daycare providers, teachers, coaches, neighbors, etc. One in four girls are sexually molested and one in 6 boys are sexually molested. Don't lull yourself into a false sense of security believing there are only 36 pedophiles in Milford, there are hundreds.
