An attorney who admitted to trading child pornography on line over a span of ten years has been disbarred by the New Jersey Supreme Court.
He pleaded guilty to one count of possession of child pornography and is serving a sentence in a federal institution.
The pornography included both images and movies that involved sadistic and masochistic images such as bondage.
The Disciplinary Review Board considered that number of images (one movie = 75 images) as well as a prior criminal charge alleging criminal sexual conduct toward a minor relative. The board chair dissented and would impose a suspension of three years. (Mike Frisch)
