Gay rigths pioneer Larry Brinkin turned himself into the San Francisco Police Department today (Thursday, September 20) on charges of two felony counts of possession of child pornography and two felony counts of distribution of child pornography, according to Randy Knox, Brinkin’s attorney.
Brinkin, 66, a longtime staffer at the San Francisco Human Rights Commission, is in custody on $240,000 bail, but Knox said, “I believe that Larry is going to post bail and be released later today.”
Knox said he hasn’t had a chance to view the evidence yet, but “he’s presumed innocent, and he respects the process, as do I.” He said he assumes the district attorney’s office will formally charge Brinkin Friday, September 21.
Brinkin was initially arrested on similar charges in June but quickly posted bail. His arrest today follows furher investigation by police at the request of the DA’s office, which has not provided comment on the case.
