A 25-year-old woman named Brittany Alexandra Robinson was the first woman in Alaska to be charged with possessing and distributing child pornography - and it appears that she got special consideration because of her gender.
The former day care worker was charged with 30 felonies: 12 counts of distributing child pornography and 18 of possessing child porn. Investigators who had been monitoring Robinson's downloading searched her home on Joint Base Elmendorf-Richardson, where she worked for the base's Child Development Center. They discovered Brittany had downloaded and shared pictures and video showing child sexual exploitation, according to a charging document.
Well she received a prison-free sentence on Thursday. Superior Court Judge Kevin M. Saxby agreed with Brittany's public defender that three years in prison, with three suspended, and five years of probation was appropriate.
“I do find good prospects for rehabilitation here based on the evaluation that was provided to me and the testimony I have heard, including Ms. Robinson’s short, but I’m convinced, heartfelt, expression of remorse,” Saxby said before imposing the sentence.
