Florida Man Who “Tweeted” Child Porn Gets Five Years In Federal Prison

A Florida man who ‘tweeted’ images of child porn, has been sentenced after pleading guilty to the charges.

Marchaun Browning, 24, Gibsonton to 5 years in federal prison, to be followed by 10 years of supervised release, for distributing and possessing child pornography.

Browning had pleaded guilty on April 21, 2021.

According to court documents, in June 2017, Browning created several Twitter accounts.

On several different occasions, he posted or “tweeted” child sex abuse images and tagged other Twitter accounts associated with elected officials, media outlets, and public figures. Browning’s tweets also contained messages directed at the intended and tagged recipients.

On June 18, 2017, law enforcement officers executed a search warrant at Browning’s residence.

The officers discovered more than 160 images and one video depicting the sexual abuse of children, including some as young as toddlers, located on Browning’s devices seized from his residence.

This case was investigated by the Federal Bureau of Investigation, with assistance from the Polk County Sheriff’s Office. It was prosecuted by Assistant United States Attorney Frank Murray.

This is another case brought as part of Project Safe Childhood, a nationwide initiative launched in May 2006 by the Department of Justice to combat the growing epidemic of child sexual exploitation and abuse.

  1. I say you take them in the front door straight through to the backdoor where a stump and axe awaits them. Then you cut off their fingers, tongue, penis and balls and leave them there to bleed out.
