    Garrett G. Brosnan.

    A former police officer in Maine has changed his plea after being charged with sending sexually explicit material to a person he believed was a teenager.

    Former Brunswick Police Officer Garrett Brosnan, 25, pleaded guilty in U.S. District Court on Wednesday after being arrested and initially charged in June.

    The investigation began when the family of a 13-year-old Arizona girl reported she had an intense, 5-day online conversation that turned sexual in nature.

    Investigators tracked down Brosnan's IP address, and eventually created a fake online account, posing as a 14-year-old girl, and messaged him.
