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.
