Former Mansfield Cop Pleads Guilty To Child Pornography Charges
A former Mansfield police officer has agreed to plead guilty to charges that he produced and received child pornography, and tried to prevent his computer from being seized.
Retired Mansfield officer Robert Anderson agreed to plead guilty Monday to two counts of producing child pornography, and one count each of receiving child pornography and removal of property to prevent seizure.
Anderson’s public defender, Charles Fleming, says the plea agreement was deemed fair by both sides.
The 69-year-old Anderson was arrested Feb. 7 during a larger child porn sting. Prosecutors say he had an account on a website that he used to share pictures and videos of young girls’ underwear and nude juveniles.
