Connecticut man takes plea deal in child porn case

They say it can be very difficult for a son to follow in the footsteps of a famous father. Expectations for the offspring are often unrealistically high; in many instances, impossible to meet.

That might well be the case with Jeremy Green, former ESPN analyst and son of famous football coach Dennis Green. The younger Green is facing a test much tougher than anything his father faced on the gridiron: Jeremy faces years in prison for possession of child pornography in Connecticut.

He recently pleaded guilty to a single count of possession of child porn in Superior Court as part of a plea agreement. Under the terms of the agreement, it's expected he'll be sentenced to 20 years in prison. Incarceration would be suspended after Green serves five years behind bars; he would upon his release begin 10 years of probation.

Green would have to register as a sex offender as well.

Apparently Green has agreed that in June of last year, he engaged in an online chat for two hours. During that time, he shared two sexually graphic videos and 17 explicit images of a young child. He shared those files with a police officer pretending to be a woman using the online name "lendingmom12."

Green reportedly told "lendingmom12" that he wanted her to bring her three kids to Connecticut so that he might meet them.

The discussion and file-sharing eventually led to Green's arrest in July 2010 in a Southington motel. He was charged with first-degree possession of child pornography, as well with possession of cocaine and drug paraphernalia.

Bristol police officers found more than 100 child porn images on computers and flash drives seized from Green at the motel and from his work computer with employer ESPN.
