A 38-year-old Kansas man faces federal sex crime charges stemming from computer activity while he was held in a state program for sexual predators.
The Wichita Eagle reports that a federal grand jury in Wichita has indicted Mark D. Brull with one count of attempting to entice a 14-year-old child to engage in sexually explicit conduct to produce child pornography and one count of receiving and distributing child porn.
The charges were announced Friday.
Brull was in the Kansas Sexual Predator Treatment Program at Larned State Hospital when he allegedly communicated with the child and received the pornography over the Internet. Brull was involuntarily committed to the state hospital in 1999 under the Kansas Sexually Violent Predator Act.
Online court records don't list a lawyer for Brull.
