Court Gets Picture: Lawyer’s Words = Child Porn


New York’s highest court has ruled that sexually charged language in a lawyer’s e-mail to an undercover agent is enough to sustain a conviction for attempted dissemination of indecent material to minors.

The defendant, Jeffrey Kozlow, had argued the statute, which bars material that depicts sexual conduct, required explicit photographs, the Associated Press reports.

Kozlow was a 41-year-old Manhattan attorney when he sent the e-mail to an agent posting as a 14-year-old boy, according to Gannett News Service.

The New York Court of Appeals remanded the case for a determination of other undecided issues.

In a 2006 opinion, the New York Supreme Court’s Appellate Division refused to delay Kozlow’s disbarment pending the outcome of the case.
