Arthur Galloway, 38, of Shelton Sentenced to 30 Months in Federal Prison
for Trading Child Pornography on the Internet

Deirdre M. Daly, Acting United States Attorney for the District of Connecticut, announced that Arthur Galloway, 38, of Shelton, was sentenced on June 27th, 2013, by United States District Judge Janet Bond Arterton in New Haven to 30 months of imprisonment, followed by 10 years of supervised release, for trading child pornography on the Internet.

According to court documents and statement made in court, on March 14, 2012, the Connecticut State Police Computer Crimes Unit, Shelton Police Department, and Federal Bureau of Investigation conducted a court-authorized search of Galloway’s residence and seized a laptop computer, an external hard drive, and other items. Investigators determined that Galloway used the Internet to trade numerous images and video of child pornography, and he was arrested at that time.

Subsequent forensic analysis of the seized items revealed that Galloway possessed 11 printed photographs, 913 images, and 45 videos of children engaging in sexually explicit conduct. Some of the videos exceeded 20 minutes in length.

On January 11, 2013, Galloway pleaded guilty to one count of receipt and distribution of child pornography.

The Connecticut Child Exploitation Task Force, which is housed at the main FBI field office in New Haven, investigates crimes against children occurring over the Internet and provides computer forensic review services for participating agencies.
