Friday, May 30, 2008
(ALBUQUERQUE)--- Twenty-one year old Travis Brown pled guilty today in a Bernalillo County District Courtroom to sexual exploitation charges brought against him by New Mexico Attorney General Gary King’s Office.
Brown pled guilty to attempted sexual exploitation of a child (3rd degree felony) and child solicitation by computer (4th degree felony). He faces a maximum of 4-and-a-half years in prison with a cap of 18 months at initial sentencing and mandatory sex offender registration.
For several months, Brown engaged an investigator from the AG’s Internet Crimes Against Children unit, posing as a 12 year old girl, in conversation over the Internet. Brown asked the “girl” to masturbate, take pictures of herself and email the photos to him.
Brown is scheduled to be sentenced August 13, 2008 at 1:30 pm.
