Doctor faces sentencing for child porn

Posted: Updated:

HARTFORD, Conn. (AP) - A former family doctor from Tolland faces sentencing for possessing child pornography after admitting he used a file-sharing service to trade images and videos.

Dr. Carl Koplin, who is scheduled to be sentenced Tuesday 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 5 years in prison.

His attorney says he's remorseful and in treatment so he never offends again. He says Koplin's child porn collection was extensive, but not as large as the government indicated.
