After being arrested in 2010, former San Francisco Human Rights Commission employee Larry Brinkin, 67, made a plea deal with the city today, admitting that he did in fact possess child pornography. He will serve only 6 months of prison time, six month of home detention, and four years' probation.
If you recall, police say that Brinkin had pornographic images in emails attached to his AOL account, imagery that showed children "as young as 1 and 2 or 3 years old being sodomized and performing oral sex on adult men." During one disturbing conversation using the email [email protected], according to a 2012 SF Weekly article, Brinkin once commented, "I loved especially the nigger 2 year old getting nailed. Hope you'll continue so I can see what the little blond bitch is going to get. White Power! White Supremacy! White Dick Rules!"
Today's plea deal effectively dropped this charge of distributing child pornography.
According to SF Examiner: "Brinkin's defense attorney Randall Knox said today that his client is 'genuinely remorseful' and 'has a much greater understanding of the damage child pornography creates.' "
Noted for his advocacy work, at least prior to his arrest, the San Francisco Board of Supervisors approved a resolution proclaiming the week of Feb. 1, 2010, "Larry Brinkin Week," stating that his "dedication to advance the civil rights of all people has never stopped."
