According to court documents, Friberg distributed, received and possessed sexually explicit images of minor females in late 2016 and early 2017.

Friberg had pleaded not guilty during a brief court appearance in Norfolk back in May.

Along with the three-year imprisonment, Friberg will also serve 15 years of supervised release and will have to pay $5,100 in special assessment. He may also have to pay more in restitution.

News 3 reached out to the Navy to confirm Friberg’s connections to the military, but a reporter hasn’t heard back.
