Sentencing This Week For Pediatrician In Child Porn Case

HARTFORD, Conn. (AP) _ A pediatrician is facing sentencing for possessing and distributing child pornography.

Todd Parrilla of Stonington is scheduled to be sentenced Wednesday in U.S. District Court in Hartford. The 48-year-old doctor pleaded guilty in June to receipt and distribution of child pornography. Parrilla had a pediatric practice in southeastern Connecticut.

Authorities say there was no evidence any of his patients were depicted in the child pornography.

Parrilla was arrested last year following the execution of a search and seizure warrant at his home. Prosecutors say an analysis of the seized computers and hard drives revealed more than 100,000 images and more than 10,000 videos depicting child pornography.

Parrilla’s attorney says he’s “intensely remorseful” and committed to treatment. He says there was no evidence he ever had inappropriate contact with a child.
