State v. Mr. K (DMC No. 9758)

REDUCED | 5 COUNTS of SEXUAL EXPLOITATION of a MINOR/CHILD PORNOGRAPHY (DCAC) REDUCED to ATTEMPT with PROBATION and 30 DAYS of DEFERRED JAIL – State v. Mr. K. (DMC No. 9758) (Maricopa County Juvenile Court JV181379): Mr. K. was a 16 year old high school student who had opened a “Lime Wire” account in order to download music and videos. City of Phoenix Police Department Detective’s ran a search and found that somebody at Mr. K.’s address had downloaded child pornography on 4 to 5 different occasions. After securing a search warrant, the SWAT team entered Mr. K.’s house with guns drawn and handcuffed and arrested everybody in the household. Originally, the Detectives had focused on Mr. K.’s father, but then they turned their attention on Mr. K.’s computer which was in his bedroom. Eventually a search was conducted on the computer which revealed numerous items of child pornography.

Mr. K. was subsequently charged with 5 counts of Sexual Exploitation of a Minor a Dangerous Crimes Against Children (DCAC) pursuant to ARS Section 13-3553. This is also known as “Child Pornography”. He was facing a mandatory minimum of 50 years in jail should he have been transferred to Adult Court. We became involved and we were able to convince the Deputy Maricopa County Attorney to keep the case in Juvenile Court. Ultimately we secured a plea to “Attempt” which included Probation and 30 days of deferred jail. Because he successfully completed his court ordered treatment, he did not have to serve that jail time. In addition, he did not have to register as a Sex Offender and he was released from probation and his case was finalized when he turned 18. He now has a clean adult record. Originally he was facing a minimum of 50 years in prison and a maximum of 115 years in prison.
