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.
