BRATTLEBORO - A Claremont, N.H., man has been sentenced to federal prison in connection with a charge of trying to lure a minor over the Internet, according to federal prosecutors. Judge J. Garvan Murtha sentenced Carlo Dobrich, 37, to 27 months in prison this week in U.S. District Court in Brattleboro. Dobrich pleaded guilty to a charge of interstate travel with the intent of engaging in illicit sexual conduct with a minor. Following his prison term, Dobrich will be on federal supervised release for five years. He will also be required to register as a sex offender, according to federal prosecutors. Prosecutors said Norwich Police Chief Douglas Robinson posed as a 13-year-old girl named "Connie" on an Internet chat room in December 2006. Dobrich, using the screen name of "Smokejumper," contacted "Connie" and questioned her "extensively about her sexual experience and described in graphic detail the sexual acts he wanted to 'teach' her." "Connie" and Dobrich arranged to meet at a restaurant and Dobrich traveled to Norwich to meet her with the intention of engaging in sexual activity with her, prosecutors said.
