Charges of Possession and Distribution of Child Pornography Dropped

Seth P. Chazin just obtained a major victory for a client who was threatened by the FBI and the US Attorney's Office of the Northern District of California with possible charges of Possession and Distribution of Child Pornography, 18 U.S.C. Section 2252 (a) (2) and 18 U.S.C. Section 2252 (a) (4). Fortunately, the Feds declined to prosecute him.

This was an especially important accomplishment for the client as he is the owner of a very a successful corporation with a high profile in the community. The key to this victory was taking an affirmative approach to the case in negotiating with the US attorney's office and directing my client to engage in treatment and obtain letters of reference on his behalf.

“The death penalty is a lie, a misguided mistake born of anger and frustration. Capital punishment has become a perverse monument to inequality, to how some lives matter and others do not. It is a violent example of how we protect and value the rich and abandon and devalue the poor. The death penalty is a grim, disturbing shadow formed by the legacy of racial apartheid and bias against the poor that condemns the disfavored among us, but corrupts us all. It’s the perverse symbol elected officials use to strengthen their ‘tough on crime’ reputations and distract us from confronting the causes of violence. It is finally the enemy of grace, redemption and all of us who recognize that each person is more than their worse act.”
