WATERBURY, Conn. (WTNH)– A Connecticut Judicial Marshal has been arrested for the third time less than three months.

State police say 53-year-old Michael Connelly of Waterbury turned himself in on a warrant Thursday. Connelly is charged with third-degree possession of child pornography. He was released on $20,000 bond and is scheduled to appear in Waterbury Superior Court on Feb. 4.

Connelly was placed on unpaid administrative leave after being arrested and charged with promoting prostitution in November. In December, he was arrested on 16 counts of sixth-degree larceny.
