But, but… he’s a Gay Rights icon!
The gay rights advocate and former member of the San Francisco Human Right Commission who pleaded guilty to possession of child pornography was sentenced Wednesday and will be required to register as a sex offender for life, according to the District Attorney’s Office.
Larry Brinkin, 67, agreed to a plea deal in January with prosecutors, who dropped a second charge of distributing child pornography.
Brinkin was sentenced Wednesday to a year’s detention, with six months served in county jail and six months home detention where he will have to wear an ankle monitor.
Brinkin is well-known in San Francisco as being a vocal advocate for gay rights. He was a member of the Human Rights Commission for 22 years before retiring in 2010. In December of that year, the Board of Supervisors declared the first week of the month “Larry Brinkin Week” because of his work on gay rights issues.
Maybe Hillary will make him ‘Safe School Czar’ after he completes his sentence.
Update: Also, he gets to keep his city pension.
