No Charges Filed in Child Pornography Case

Client is a very successful owner of a corporation that does business internationally as well as a person of great stature in his community.  He contacted Seth P. Chazin after learning that he was being investigated by the FBI for being in possession of hundreds of pictures of child pornography as well as vile writings that made defending this client that much more difficult.  He was also investigated for distributing child pornography.

Seth P. Chazin immediately contacted the Assistant United States Attorney assigned to his case and fostered a good relationship with that person.  Seth P. Chazin also immediately directed the client to seek sex offender treatment and psychotherapy to help him with his issues concerning deviant interests and an addiction to pornography.  We also thoroughly investigated the facts and circumstances of his case as well as gathered letters in support of this client from well-respected members of the community.  Almost 12 months of negotiations ensued and finally we were notified that the US Attorney's Office for the Northern District of California in San Francisco dropped the charges.  This was an important victory for this client as he was potentially facing a mandatory minimum sentence of 5 years in prison.
