REDUCED | Child Pornography, State v. Mr. H. (DMC No. 7155) (Maricopa County Superior Court No. JV-544956): REDUCED to Probation – Mr. H. was a 17 year old male who was utilizing a file sharing software “Limewire.” While downloading music and videos, he came across what appeared to be child pornography. Due to his youth and inexperience, he downloaded these images. He thought they were “gross” and would use them to “freak out” his friends. The FBI traced the images to his computer and executed a search warrant. His mother brought him down for questioning and let him speak to police. This resulted with him being charged with Child Pornography. We were able to keep the case in the juvenile system, as opposed to being transferred to the adult system where Mr. H. would have faced 10 years in prison, per video. Ultimately, the case was resolved with probation until his 18th birthday, 60 days of deferred jail, and various counseling. When he successfully completed his counseling and probation, the jail was deleted and he did not have to register as a sex offender. He now has nothing showing on his adult record.
