Orange County Tumbling Coach Arrested on Child Pornography and Molestation Charges
Christopher Brown, 42, of Orange, was arrested Friday on multiple criminal charges, including possession and manufacturing of child pornography and digital penetration and oral copulation with a child. The arrest came following an investigation by the Orange County Child Exploitation Task Force and the Los Angeles Internet Crimes Against Children Task Force. Brown, who works as a tumbling coach throughout the country, allegedly used his job to lure his victims into taking illicit photographs and engaging in sexual misconduct. Ten years ago, in 2005, Brown was convicted of child pornography possession in Virginia, but failed to register as a sex offender when he moved to California several years ago. Anyone with additional information or who may have been victimized by Brown was asked to contact the Orange County Sheriff’s Department’s Special Victim’s Unit at (714) 647-7418 or (714) 647-7000.
