Former Middletown Officer Charged With Inappropriate Contact With Minor

Federal investigators earlier this month charged Samuel DiProto with possession of child pornography.

Charges of inappropriate contact with a minor have emerged against the 61-year-old retired Middletown Police officer who was charged earlier this month with possession of child pornography. 

Samuel DiProto, 61, is being held on a $1 million bond for risk of injury to a minor, cruelty to persons, first-degree unlawful restraint and first-degree reckless endangerment. These charges, according to a press release from Connecticut State Police, arose from evidence seized from his Cromwell home.

He was arrested May 7 and charged by federal criminal complaint with possession of child pornography.

The criminal complaint alleges that on March 12, 2013, and April 10, 2013, a Connecticut State Police detective assigned to the Computer Crimes Unit logged onto a publicly available Internet file sharing network and downloaded images and videos of child pornography from a computer connected to the network with an Internet Protocol address assigned to DiProto.

I wonder if he was doing this while he still wore the badge...
