Ex-LBPD Officer Accused of Child Pornography Could Get $90,000 Annual Pension
According to the LB Post, former Long Beach police officer Anthony Mark Brown could receive more than $90,000 in pension benefits during his retirement years even though he's facing charges of possessing child porn while he was on the force.
Anthony Mark Brown, a 26-year veteran of the force, was arrested while on duty and charged with three felony counts of child pornography distribution and one felony count of possession, is set to earn a monthly pension of around $7,800, or $93,600 per year, from the state-run CalPERS retirement system.
Context: The state can only terminate CalPERS benefits under limited situations, such as when a retiree is accused of a crime related to their work.
Brown's official duties with the LBPD have not been linked to the allegations that he posted pictures and videos of children, some as young as 7, being sexually assaulted.
According to Transparent California, in 2019, Brown received $116,668 in salary and another $106,983 overtime. Overall, Brown earned $294,447 that year after insurance and other compensation, according to the database.
