Former Long Beach Police Officer Sentenced to 6 Years in Federal Prison for Distributing Child Pornography

Posted by John Rogers | Jul 28, 2022

According to a U.S. Attorney's Office press release, a former Long Beach police officer was sentenced to six years in federal prison for distributing child pornography while on duty. Anthony Brown, of Lakewood, was sentenced by U.S. District Judge Virginia A. Phillips, who also ordered Brown to be placed on supervised release for life.

Brown was convicted earlier this year after pleading guilty in March 2022.

Court records indicate that from 2019 through 2020, Brown engaged in graphic sex chats with other users in which he posed as his wife and discussed encouraging fictitious minor female relatives to participate in group sex acts. While on duty as a police officer, Brown distributed images of teenage and prepubescent girls engaged in sexually explicit conduct.

Brown served as a police officer with the City of Long Beach for 27 years. He resigned in 2021 after his arrest on state child pornography charges.
