Former Head of LA Neighborhood Commission Pleads Guilty To Distributing & Possessing Child Porn

Albert N. Abrams, 64, head of Los Angeles Neighborhood Commission, entered his plea to a felony count of distribution of child pornography he received over the Internet.

Abrams resigned from his position immediately after FBI agents found massive kiddie porn stashed in his home.

In a plea agreement, Abrams pled guilty acknowledging that he collected more than 600 images of child pornography over the course of more than 10 years, which contained images of children under 12, including infants, “engaging in sexually explicit conduct” and portraying “sadistic or masochistic” activity.

When his house was searched in 2011 pursuant to a valid search warrant, Abrams told a TV station that a now excised growth on his spine left him with a split personality causing him to do things out of his character.

Abrams was charged last February in an eight-count indictment that accused him of distributing, receiving and possessing child pornography. He did not speak at the hearing other than to respond that he understood the judge’s statements.

In exchange for the guilty plea, prosecutors will recommend Abrams receive a sentence of between five and eight years in prison, lifetime supervised release, and a fine of $5,000.
Sentencing will take place December 10th and Abrams remains free until then.
