Convicted New Milford sex offender abused minor 5-6 times | #childpredator | #kidsaftey | #childsaftey

NEW MILFORD — The convicted sex offender apprehended by U.S. Marshals last month allegedly abused his underage victim several times over the course of eight or nine months, according to the recently unsealed warrant for his arrest.

Ryan Kvale, 41, of New Milford, is facing 10 felony and six misdemeanor charges — including sexual assault, risk of injury to minor and illegal distribution of alcohol and cannabis — following an investigation into the alleged sexual assault of an underage girl.

Kvale has pleaded not guilty to all the charges brought against him and remains held on two bonds totaling $800,000, according to court documents. He is next scheduled to appear at state Superior Court in Torrington, where he’s being represented by a public defender, on Oct. 24. His attorney could not be reached for comment on Thursday afternoon. 

New Milford police said they launched the investigation April 19, after receiving a Department of Children and Families referral regarding the alleged abuse, which had been reported to the agency by a relative of the victim’s friend.

According to the warrant for Kvale’s arrest, the victim’s friend’s relative told authorities the victim had recently “admitted that terrible things had happened” to her and agreed to let them make a report on her behalf.

The victim told authorities during a forensic interview that Kvale abused her five or six times beginning in or around April 2022 and ending in either December 2022 or January 2023, according to the warrant.

She also claimed that Kvale provided her with marijuana one time and gave her alcoholic drinks on two other occasions, the warrant states.

After several failed attempts to contact Kvale, New Milford police obtained a warrant in June for his arrest.

With help from the U.S. Marshals Service, New Milford Police Chief Spencer Cerruto said his department located Kvale in New Haven and took him into custody Sept. 8.
