NEW HAVEN, Conn. (AP) — Federal prosecutors say a former Granby police captain investigated child pornography while he secretly amassed one of the largest child porn collections in Connecticut.

Authorities filed court papers Tuesday for the sentencing Friday of David Bourque, who pleaded guilty last year to receipt and distribution of child pornography. He faces 17 to 20 years in prison.

Prosecutors say Bourque was caught with more than 26,000 images and videos of child pornography on his computers that showed the sexual abuse of young boys, including infants and toddlers.

They say Bourque spoke to an FBI agent at a conference about infiltrating platforms pedophiles use.

A message was left for Bourque’s lawyer, Richard Brown, who has said his client accepted responsibility for his actions and sought treatment for mental health problems.

    will he have to register as a sex offender ?

    This is the same upstanding pillar of society that 16 years ago investigated the accident where my wife was hit by a car, driven by an uninsured Massachusetts motorist, while crossing Rt 159 in Suffield, and testified that it was her fault for not getting out of the way. No ticket was ever issued to the driver. I cannot wait for his fellow inmates to find out who he is and what he is going to be in for.

    And even with police officers and lawmen arrested almost daily for sex crimes, we continue to believe the lies they feed us about the necessity and effectiveness of the registry.
