It's a felony, but is it moral turpitude?

Local lawyer suspended — youth pornography

David Dale Lamb has been suspended by the State Bar of California, according to the February edition of California Lawyer and state bar records. Lamb, a public defender, has been convicted of possessing child pornography or, officially, "attempted receipt of images of minors engaged in sexually explicit conduct," according to California Lawyer.

Says the state bar, "The offense is a felony, but the State Bar's Review Department invited the parties to file briefs addressing whether the statutory violation involves moral turpitude per se."

DailyMail.com says agents found "hundreds of photos and videos of pre-pubescent children on his computer and thumb drive." They were involved in sexual activity.

Lamb defended Brian David Mitchell in February of 2003 after he broke into a church. At the time, Mitchell still was holding Elizabeth Smart captive, in a case that was followed by media around the world.

"Crimes involving moral turpitude have an inherent quality of baseness, vileness, or depravity with respect to a person's duty to another or to society in general", part of the legal definition. Someone who can use deranged deceptive deleterious influences should give up his pretensions of righteous therapeutic assistance to others.

shirleyberan: An act of moral turpitude gravely violates societal standards. I go over records of the state bar searching for those disciplined or disbarred. Moral turpitude only comes up part of the time. Best, Don Bauder

Eric Nelson: No, lots of lawyers get disciplined by the bar without being cited for moral turpitude. Best, Don Bauder

Trump named "Pants on Fire LIar of 2006 by Politifact. Usually they "honor" some political figure for "lie of the year" Politifact said during fact check research that they got buried in so many of Trump's lies that they could not single out just one lie...so they went with "Liar of the Year" because of the sheer volume of falsehoods told and twittered by Trump.
