Britton was being evicted by his landlords on Sept. 22, 2011, when Chester police were preparing to arrest him for failing to register as a sex offender.Once the landlords allegedly found child pornography on Britton's computer they called police. That set off a wider investigation by Chester police that resulted in Britton being indicted on the sex assault case, failing to register as a sex offender, being a felon in possession of a firearm, possessing child pornography.Britton, who was convicted of aggravated felonious sexual assault in 1983, is barred from owning a firearm because he is a felon.
He is expected to face separate trials on charges of possession of child sexual abuse images and being a felon in possession of a weapon.He pleaded guilty for failing to register as a sex offender and served 12 months in jail.
