Pensacola man arrested for soliciting child for sex

A Pensacola man has been taken into custody on charges he sexually solicited someone he thought was a minor and exposure himself over a webcam to that person.

Robert Lee Brown was arrested by law enforcement with the Attorney General’s CyberCrime Unit, Lake County Sheriff's Office and the Pensacola Police Department after he solicited an undercover detective with the Lake County Sheriff’s Office.

Brown, 39, approached the undercover Lake County detective who was posing online as a 14-year old girl and began exposing himself over a webcam and soliciting the "child" to engage in similar sexual activities.

The Lake County Sheriff’s Office contacted the CyberCrime Unit for assistance in locating Brown, and the CyberCrime Unit interviewed Brown at his Pensacola home.

Brown admitted he had been talking to someone he thought was a child and still exposed her to his graphic sexual behavior. He was taken into custody after his confession.

Brown will be booked into the Escambia County Jail.

He will be charged with soliciting a minor for sex, a third-degree felony, and lewd and lascivious exhibition on a computer, a second-degree felony.

Bond has been set at $20,000.
