Aaron Bruns Convicted
Posted by shadmia on July 22, 2009
Aaron Bruns, 29, an ex-Fox News Channel producer, has been sentenced to 10 years in prison for possessing child pornography.
Bruns was arrested in February, 2009, when Federal agents found pictures and videos on his computer of children under 10 years old being sexually abused by adult men and women. This was not Bruns’ first brush with the law.
He was previously arrested in March 1999 while at the University of Michigan. At that time investigators found more than 6,000 images on his computer of children engaged in sexual activity. Bruns dropped out of university while his case was pending and eventually pleaded guilty in July 1999 to distributing child pornography over the internet. He was sentenced to 3 years probation.
Bruns had been an imbed reporter for the FOX channel with the Hillary Clinton 2008 presidential campaign. The day before his arrest Bruns filed a story about the farewell speeches of Joe Biden and Hillary Clinton on the senate floor. Three days after his arrest on child porn charges he was fired.
