Shelton Attorney Facing Federal Child Porn Charges

NEW HAVEN, Conn. (AP) – A Connecticut attorney is facing federal charges of taking nude photographs of a minor.

U.S. Attorney Deirdre Daly says Peter Kruzynski, of Shelton, appeared Friday before a federal magistrate in New Haven. Kruzynski was arrested on a criminal complaint charging him with production and possession of child pornography.

Kruzynski was released on a $250,000 bond. It’s unclear if he has a lawyer.  A number listed for Kruzynski was disconnected.

Prosecutors say Kruzynski repeatedly sexually assaulted the victim beginning in 2009, when the victim was 12, until August 2016, when the victim was 18.

Prosecutors allege Kruzynski took sexually explicit photographs of the underage victim and threatened to send the photos to others if the victim refused to see him.

Kruzynski was arrested Aug. 30 on related state charges.
