A former sports writer and NFL analyst for ESPN is in the Taney County jail on multiple charges of promoting child pornography.
Taney County prosecutor Jeff Merrell says Jeremy Dennis Green, 39, of Bristol, Connecticut was chatting with an undercover Taney County deputy in June and July of 2010 who was posing as the mother of underage kids when Green allegedly shared 17 photos and 3 videos showing an adult male and toddler in explicit situations.
According to court records, Green stated during the chat that he would pay for children to visit him in Connecticut for the purpose of sex. When detectives in Connecticut examined the contents of one of the flash drives they found more than 100 pornographic images. A sampling of those images showed girls between the ages of 2 and 10, according to the arrest warrant.
According to published reports in Connecticut Green pleaded guilty in February of this year to one count of possession of child pornography.
Green is the son of former NFL coach Dennis Green and worked for the Cleveland Browns before joining ESPN.
Green, who was booked into the Taney County jail on October 7th, is being held on $100,000 bond. His preliminary hearing is scheduled for November 14th.
