SEYMOUR, CT (WFSB) -

A man from Seymour was sentenced to 18 months in jail Tuesday for possessing child pornography.

On Dec. 7, 2009, the Naugatuck Police Department seized three computers and computer-related items from Joseph Calvin Laughner's house, following an investigation by the Connecticut Computer Crimes Task Force.

Police said he used a file sharing program to download more than 300 images and 22 videos of child porn.

According to his lawyer, Laughner was sexually abused as a child, and is seeking two years of home confinement.

Laughner pleaded guilty to one count of possession of child pornography on May 15.

Following his jail sentence, Laughner will serve five years of supervised release.
