State v. Mr. L (DMC No. 3901)

REDUCED | POSSESSION AND DISTRIBUTION OF CHILD PORNOGRAPHY State v. Mr. L. (DMC No. 3901) (Maricopa County Superior Court No.: 2003-005553CR): Mr. L. was a student at ASU who lived in a dormitory. He discovered a website which rewarded people listening to music by giving them points which could be redeemed for prizes. Mr. L constructed a computer program which allowed numerous people to listen to music while he would personally accumulate the point. During the course of this site, child pornography was received on this website and distributed. He was subsequently arrested and charged with ten (10) counts of possession of child pornography. The mandatory minimum he was facing was 100 years in prison. We were able to show the prosecutor the innocent intent of this website, combined with Mr. L’s youth, in order to obtain a plea to attempt (the lowest level felony). Although Mr. L had typed in certain requests which could be construed as a solicitation for child pornography, he did receive probation with one (1) years of jail time with work release. The norm on these cases is ten (10) years in prison.
