No Charges Filed in Palo Alto Child Pornography Case

Our client was charged with possession of child pornography in Palo Alto (Santa Clara County).

An aggressive approach to our client's case, including early and diligent investigation and preparation convinced the supervising DA to dismiss the charge even before the case got off the ground. In the words of the supervising DA, "tell your client that his attorney did an excellent job for him."

This was a very important victory for our client who was falsely accused of this possession of child pornography case, as a conviction would have thrown his life into permanent turmoil as he is married and has children and is a successful Engineer.

“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.”
