New Jersey Child Pornography Lawyer, Jef Henninger, Esq, has successfully won a child pornography trial in Union County. Our client was charged as part of Operation Web Sweep. The case took five years to go to trial. During that time, we had to constantly hear from the State about how they were going to win the case. Despite the fact that the client made a statement that could be seen as a confession, Jef took the case to trial. The client was charged with two counts of distribution of child pornography. After both sides rested, the jury was out four days. In the end, they found the client not guilty of both counts. This is one of the only times that a lawyer has won a jury trial for a child pornography distribution case in New Jersey.

Two Bergen County men were arrested Thursday on charges they tried to sell guns that may have once belonged to the family of former Iraqi dictator Saddam Hussein. The firearms, including semi-automatic pistols, 12 gauge shotguns and magnum revolvers, were appraised at between $250,000 and $350,000.According to a criminal complaint filed in U.S. District Court in Newark, federal agents determined that 48-year-old David Phillip Ryan, of Miami, Fla., contacted a Pittsburgh, Pa. man, 52-year-old Karlo Sauer, to appraise the guns. In turn, Sauer passed information on to 74-year-old Fort Lee resident Howard Blumenthal and Carlos Quirola-Ordonez, 55, of New Milford, in an effort to find a buyer. As the guns were shopped, they were stored in an unnamed sporting goods store in Ridgefield.According to the criminal complaint, the U.S. ambassador to Iraq later confirmed that the guns were the property of Iraq, and warrants for Ryan, Sauer, Blumenthal and Quirola-Ordonez were issued. Each is charged with conspiracy to transport stolen firearms and conspiracy to sell and receive stolen property. Ryan is also charged with an additional count of unlawful mailing of firearms.

Our client was charged with Lewdness, Endangering the Welfare of a Child and Theft in Passaic County. This was another one of those fun cases that make you happy to be a defense lawyer. It helps that the client and his family were nice people – oh yeah, and the client was getting completely railroaded! The client was performing some work in the home of the alleged victim. After he left with his co-worker, the home owner called the police to report an Ipad missing. Due to a lack of discovery, it is impossible to determine what exactly transpired next but at some point, a picture of a penis was found on a digital camera. The camera may have belonged to the home owner’s daughter but that remains unclear. Regardless, the possible connection between the camera and the daughter led to the endangering the welfare of a child charge. Although there is no indication that the co-worker implicated my client, my client was arrested after the police spoke to the co-worker. The co-worker was never arrested.
The client swore up and down that it wasn’t him but I was unable to determine why the client was charged and the co-worker was not. It took us quite some time to get the discovery from the State but we eventually did before the client was indicted. Obtaining pre-indictment discovery is always important and it is often overlooked by defense lawyers in New Jersey. The discovery raised more questions and answered none. There was absolutely no evidence against my client! I mean none, zero, zilch. In fact, there was no discovery about much of anything. Luckily, I was dealing with a great prosecutor. I explained to her that she didn’t have a case against my client or anyone. As a result, I was able to get all of the felony charges dismissed.

We worked out another great deal today. In this case, our client was facing two contempt charges for violating a restraining order. In the first case, he went to the victim’s house after he was verbally advised of the restraining order. He was then arrested. The next day he texted the victim several times which then resulted in yet another violation of the restraining order and thus, yet another arrest. The big concern here is that he had a criminal record and was thus looking at six months in jail if convicted.
Luckily, the client hired our team of tough, smart, Ocean County Criminal Defense Lawyers to help him. We were able to get one of the charges dismissed and make sure that he didn’t spent one day in jail. Other than $125 fine, he will suffer no real consequences as a result of the plea.
