Tolland doctor pleads guilty to child porn charges

Posted: Updated:
NEW HAVEN, CT (AP) -

A family doctor from Tolland has pleaded guilty to federal child pornography charges, admitting he used a file-sharing service to trade thousands of images and videos.

Dr. Carl Koplin pleaded guilty Wednesday to a single count of 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, whose medical license expires on Friday, faces a minimum of five years in prison when he is sentenced on Dec. 11.

Before his arrest, Koplin practiced medicine in Tolland and served on the medical advisory board for the state Department of Motor Vehicles.
