    A Danbury letter carrier who was charged with possession and distribution of child porn in August 2012  has been sentenced to 30 months in prison for trading child pornography online.

    According to the U.S. Attorney from Connecticut, an investigation into Paul D'Ambrosio, 49, began Aug. 8 2012 when a detective assigned to the Connecticut Computer Crimes Task Force logged into a publicly available file sharing program and downloaded 50 images and 10 videos depicting child pornography from directories maintained by D'Ambrosio.

    Agents arrested Paul D'Ambrosio, 49, of Waterbury, at a U.S. Postal Service facility in Danbury where he worked as a mail carrier and authorities also seized a computer and other components from D'Ambrosio's home in Waterbury.

    According to the U.S. Attorney's Office, investigators found more than 600 images and videos of child pornography, including images of children under the age of 12 engaged in sexually explicit conduct and images of children engaging in sadistic or masochistic conduct.

    D'Ambrosio pleaded guilty on March 11 to one count of receipt and distribution of child pornography.

    After spending 30 months in prison, D'Ambrosio will be under supervised release for six years.
