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.
Federal investigators say Brosnan then sent the undercover agents photos of his genitals.
Brosnan faces up to 10 years in prison and a fine of up to $250,000.
