Jeremy Green pleads guilty in child pornography case

Former ESPN analyst and Cleveland Browns scout Jeremy Green, the son of former Minnesota Vikings and Arizona Cardinals head coach Dennis Green, has pleaded guilty to one count of child pornography and was sentenced to 20 years in prison, suspended after five, according to the Hartford Courant.

Green was accused of sharing sexually explicity photos and videos of a toddler on the Internet.

He was also sentenced to 10 years of probation.

Green was chatting online with a woman with the handle, 'lendingmom12' who told him she would bring her three children to Connecticut to meet with Green.

The woman was a detective, though, working undercover. Green used the screen name, 'jjack0721.'

That online chat led to his arrest.

At first, Green was charged first-degree possession of child pornography, possession of narcotics and use of drug paraphernalia.

He admitted to police that he was a habitual cocaine user.

Detectives seized Green's computer and a separate computer that belonged to ESPN, at a motel and discovered cocaine in his room.

Over 100 pornographic images, including girls between ages 2 and 10, were found on the computer, according to police.

Green was fired by ESPN following the arrest.
