24 year old Robert Floyd Brown, Junior of Dothan will spend the next 40 years behind bars for producing, possessing, and transporting pornography.
Posing as a woman, Brown convinced teenage boys to send sexual images over the internet then threatened public distribution if they didn't perform more sexual acts.
His victims included a 14 year old and 10 year old in Kansas, a 14 year old and 15 year old in Colorado and a 15 year old in Texas.
Federal officials said Thursday the investigation began when the mother of one of the victims contacted officials who investigated and learned Brown was in Dothan.
Dothan police went to his house and arrested Brown and confiscated his computer.
Officials also said Brown engaged in sexually explicit chats with an adult male and threatened to publicly distribute the adult’s online chats unless the adult engaged in sex acts with a 9 month old baby.
The man did those acts and now efforts are underway to identify the baby authorities believe is in Australia.
Federal investigators thanked the Dothan Police Department for their work in this case to bring this man to justice.
The court also sentenced Brown to lifetime supervision upon his release from prison.
