EAST HARTFORD–An East Hartford High School student is being charged with possessing child pornography and other charges after posting nude and semi-nude photos of female students on a social media site, according to court documents.

Police arrested Brandon Brown, 18, in October. He was arraigned in Manchester Superior Court last week.

Brown’s arrest warrant states that he created an Instagram account in May.  He posted more than 20 photos of girls, many of them graphic. He also added sexually explicit comments on the photos before the account was deactivated, the warrant says.

Police tracked down 15 of the victims who said that some of the photos were obtained from social media. The nude photos, they said, were shared “without their permission.”

According to the warrant, a 14-year-old girl who was one of the victims suffered emotionally from the ordeal. The documents say she, “cut herself and her family sought treatment for her due to this emotional distress.”

Police tracked the Instagram account to Brown through his IP address. He admitted to officers that he created the account and posted the photos.

    THIS GUY is what 10 years is for… not for  viewing. People today are so ignorant because they want to castrate and kill EVERYBODY! They don’t even want to talk about the difference between a pedophile who is sexually assaulting a child and a pedophile who is looking at nude children on a nudist beach. FYI – in some countries it’s perfectly normal for nudist families to get together at beaches or parks. But in the United States, the people are so puritanical that just thinking about a nude child will give them a brain hemorrhage.

    He should be fine in prison once he’s convicted of making child pornography. They love those kiddy porn guys in there! I’m sure he’ll be wearing kool-aid lipstick and magic marker eyeshadow for all of his new prison pals.
