On the eve of the elections, supporters of Simcha Felder criticized his opponent, state Sen. David Storobin, for asking a judge to go easy for his client who was busted for child porn, the Daily News reports.
In a 2008 case, federal judge Gerard Lynch admonished Storobin for being “utterly unprepared to deal with the seriousness of the matter before the court.”
Prior to sentencing Michael Malinowski to 12 years in prison for sending child porn images to an undercover Bronx officer who was posing as a mother interested in it, Storobin was asking for leniency from the judge.
“How can he claim to be an advocate for stricter sentences? How can he claim to be tough on crime?” asked a Felder supporter.
“From a moral point of view, it would be very difficult to represent someone who was actually guilty of something,” he said.
