A woman has been charged with multiple counts of child pornography.
Brittany A. Robinson, 22, is the first woman in Alaska to be charged with child pornography, according to a press release from Anchorage Police Department spokesperson Dani Myren.
According to the press release, APD detectives received videos of child pornography from Robinson via an undercover internet-based program in March. Myren wrote in the statement that "these videos depicted the sexual abuse of children between five and 15 years of age."
On April 9, APD detectives, Alaska State Trooper investigators, and the Air Force Office of Special Investigations worked together to serve a search warrant on Robinson's residence on Joint Base Elmendorf-Richardson. "Numerous computers and digital media were seized at the time," Myren wrote.
The evidence obtained through the search warrant underwent forensic analysis, resulting in Robinson being charged with 12 counts of distribution of child pornography and 18 counts of possession of child pornography. According to information gathered from CourtView, Robinson is scheduled for a pre-indictment hearing on July 2.
There is no indication that Robinson had inappropriate contact with other children, but due to her prior employment with a child care facility, APD detectives are asking anyone with additional information to call the department at (907) 786-8900.
