Deputy L.A. City Attorney Arrested For Child Porn

A 57-year-old Los Angeles city deputy attorney in was arrested on child porn charges last Thursday (Sept. 4). Christopher Richard Garcia is accused of distributing sexually explicit photos of a minor last April.

Reports the Los Angeles Times:

Garcia had been under investigation since at least November, when authorities served a search warrant at his home and seized computers and other “electronic evidence,” Preciado said.

“At the time, they found some questionable images,” she said.

A forensic search of the computer revealed evidence of child exploitation, she said.

Prosecutors said Garcia has been charged with sending or bringing obscene material into the state for sale and possession of material depicting minors engaged in sexual conduct.

He allegedly sent some of the material on April 2, 2013, and was found in possession of it that November, according to court records.

“When our office became aware of these allegations ten months ago, Mr. Garcia was immediately placed on administrative leave, where he remains today,” a spokesman for the City Attorney’s office said via statement. “We cannot comment further on this ongoing criminal matter.”

Garcia has since been released on $40,000 bail.
