Breaking from WCME News 9: Ex-Cop Guilty Plea

About This Project

A former Brunswick police officer faces up to ten years in prison after pleading guilty to attempting to send obscene material to a minor.

25-year-old Garrett Brosnan was arrested in June after an investigation that began last October when the parents of a 13-year-old girl in Arizona complained that someone engaged in online conversations that were sexual in nature with their daughter. It was then that a Department of Homeland Security Agent, posing as a 14-year-old girl, then began having conversations with Brosnan, who they said, sent pictures of his genitals in June.

In addition to prison, Brosnan faces a fine of up to 245 thousand dollars and supervised release of up to three years.
