Torrington man arrested on possession of child porn

A Torrington man has been charged with illegal possession of child pornography.

Christopher Galvin, 45, was arrested on Nov. 30, and Shelton police said this arrest stems from Galvin’s original two arrests in January and April. Shelton Police Det. Richard Bango said earlier this year, Galvin was arrested and charged with fourth-degree sexual assault and second-degree sexual assault for allegedly having sex with a 13-year-old girl.

Bango said that during that investigation, detectives searched Galvin’s cell phone and discovered naked photographs of the victim at various ages.

Galvin was held on a $10,000 bond and arraigned in court that same day.
