Former Milford 2nd-Grade Teacher Sentenced to Over 3 Years for Possessing Child Sexual Abuse Material after HSI Cybercrime Investigation

Release Date: May 16, 2024

BOSTON — A former Milford teacher was sentenced today in federal court in Worcester for possessing child sexual abuse material following an investigation by Homeland Security Investigations (HSI) New England.

Vincent Kiejzo, 36, was sentenced by U.S. District Court Judge Margaret R. Guzman to 42 months in prison to be followed by five years of supervised release. Kiejzo was also ordered to pay $43,500 in restitution to victims. In December 2024, Kiejzo pleaded guilty to one count of possession of child pornography.

In or around May 2019, an HSI New England cybercrime investigation found an IP address registered to Kiejzo was linked to two websites known to host videos, photos and discussions of content depicting the sexual exploitation of minor victims. During a search of Kiejzo’s Milford home in September 2020, HSI special agents found a USB drive plugged into a television in his bedroom containing links to websites dedicated to child sexual exploitation. The USB drive also contained well as over 6,000 images of child sexual abuse — including images that involved infants.

At the time of his arrest, Kiejzo was a second-grade teacher in Milford. Upon his release from prison, Kiejzo will be required to register as a sex offender and will be prohibited from contact with children.

Acting U.S. Attorney Joshua S. Levy and HSI New England Special Agent in Charge Michael J. Krol made the announcement. The Milford Police Department also assisted with the investigation.

Report suspected child exploitation to the HSI tip line at 877-4-HSI-TIP or through the CyberTipline on the National Center for Missing & Exploited Children's website.
