L.A. City Appointee Gets|Seven Years for Child Porn

     LOS ANGELES (CN) – The former president of Los Angeles’ Board of Neighborhood Commissioners was sentenced to seven years in federal prison for distributing child pornography.
     Albert Noah Abrams, 64, of Tarzana, was sentenced Monday and sent to jail. He was arrested in February and pleaded guilty in September, the U.S. Attorney’s Office said.
     According to the U.S. attorney’s statement: “The case against Abrams resulted from an investigating into the sharing of child pornography on a peer-to-peer network. Following a search of Abrams’ residence in 2011, federal agents reviewed files on a computer and two external hard drives and determined there were more than 3,500 pictures and over 4,200 videos of suspected child pornography, according to a sentencing memorandum filed by prosecutors. Investigators also determined that the computer equipment had more than 3,000 deleted pictures of child pornography and over 4,000 deleted movie files that had names suggesting child pornography.
     “Prosecutors said in court papers that Abrams had been collecting child pornography for over a decade and that ‘he also downloaded the “Hunter’s Guide to Finding Child Lovers,” which is a 170-page document giving pedophiles advice on how to find and have sexual contact with children.'”
     After serving his time, Abrams will be on supervised release for the rest of his life and will have to register as a sex offender.
     He resigned from his appointed slot on the Board of Neighborhood Commissioners after he was arrested. The board sets policy and oversees the City of Los Angeles’ Neighborhood Councils and its Department of Neighborhood Empowerment.
