Man pleads guilty to making 8-year-old send explicit photos

VIRGINIA BEACH — Court documents say a local man faces at least 15 years in prison after talking an 8-year-old girl into sending him sexually explicit photos and videos.

Leedente Darrell Brown, 31, pleaded guilty on Monday to producing child pornography and will be sentenced in April.

Court documents show the girl’s mother called police to report a suspicious man outside her daughter’s window in August 2017.

Investigators determined they had been trading messages for months, and the girl thought they were in a romantic relationship. He told the girl he was 21 and a police officer, and threatened to kill her if she told anyone.

Brown told detectives he wanted to have a sexual relationship with the girl.
