Deputy L.A. City Attorney Busted for Child Porn

A deputy Los Angeles city attorney was arrested at his home on Thursday on multiple charges of child pornography, according to the Los Angeles Times.

LAPD spokeswoman and Officer Liliana Peciado told the Times that Christopher Richard Garcia, 57, was booked on suspicion of possessing and distributing child pornography. Garcia posted $40,000 bail shortly after the arrest, court records show.

Garcia had apparently been under investigation since November, according to city attorney spokesman Rob Wilcox.

“When our office became aware of these allegations 10 months ago, Mr. Garcia was immediately placed on administrative leave, where he remains today,” Wilcox told the Times. “We cannot comment further on this ongoing criminal matter.”

Officer Preciado explained that authorities executed a search warrant at Garcia’s house in November, where they found “some questionable images” after conducting a forensic search on one of Garcia’s computers. According to the Times, Garcia is charged with sending or bringing obscene material into the state for sale and possession of material depicting minors engaged in sexual conduct.

The report notes that Garcia is listed as an attorney for the Los Angeles International Airport (LAX) and previously worked with the U.S. Attorney’s office and a joint electronic crimes task force.
