Los Angeles Criminal Defense Attorney Interviewed Regarding Child Pornography Laws
LOS ANGELES, Jan. 23 /PRNewswire/ —
Dmitry Gorin, Esq., a top criminal defense attorney in Los Angeles and the San Fernando Valley, and a former Senior District Attorney, was interviewed at length about child pornography laws, and criminal defense issues by a California radio station, KSRO, in late 2008.
This topic has received intense media interest, after numerous Dateline shows and recent arrests in Los Angeles County. According to the Los Angeles County District Attorney’s Office, over the last six months, two high-profile individuals were arrested for related child porn offenses: (1) an attorney, and (2) a school principal. Further, in late 2008, an aide for Barbara Boxer was arrested on child pornography charges in Northern California.
“Child pornography possession is a crime of the mind, where the person charged has not directly injured a child. The images of kids abused are horrible, but the person who is charged is not a child molester. Rather it is someone who needs therapy for addiction to all internet pornography. … Defending the accused in child pornography cases involves aggressive court advocacy, a psychological evaluation of the client, sometimes a polygraph examination, and even intense negotiation with the prosecution to show them that the client has never hurt a child …” said Gorin.
“At Kestenbaum, Eisner & Gorin, we strive to achieve justice for our clients and the best possible outcome.” Many clients who are charged with possession of child pornography in state or federal court often benefit from psychological treatment as to addiction issues.
Gorin is a well-known Los Angeles criminal defense attorney whose expertise in the area of child pornography defense is sought after by clients and the media. Defending clients in child pornography cases is a delicate process because of the emotional issues involved, but Dmitry Gorin has years of experience defending clients facing extremely serious charges. Last month, a legal professional charged with possession of child pornography settled his case receiving community service, no jail time, and mandatory sex offender registration. Mr. Gorin demonstrated to the prosecution that the client was a professional, with no criminal record, and was not a danger in the community.
