Ex-Scituate, R.I., resident pleads guilty to child porn

A 42-year-old former resident of Scituate, R.I., has pleaded guilty in federal court to possessing nearly 2,300 images and 32 videos depicting pornography involving children. Rhode Island’s US attorney said Tuesday that Robert Brown Jr. pleaded guilty in Providence to distribution and possession of child pornography. Prosecutors said an undercover FBI agent in San Diego was friended by Brown in 2009 through online file sharing programs often used to share child pornography. The agent was given access to Brown’s files and downloaded images and video depicting child pornography. Authorities said Brown shared files from an Internet address subscribed to him at his Scituate address.
