BOSTON – An employee of the Milford Public Schools was arrested today and charged with possession of child pornography.

Vincent Kiejzo, 33, was charged by criminal complaint with one count of possession of child pornography. Following an initial appearance in federal court in Worcester, Kijzo was detained pending a detention hearing scheduled for Friday, Sept. 11, 2020.

According to the charging documents, and based on preliminary onsite forensic review, Kiejzo possessed approximately 6,000 images of apparent child pornography stored within a thumb drive, including images that involved a prepubescent minor or a minor who had not attained 12 years of age.
