    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.
