Child Porn Plea For Former WC Spokesman

Al Abrams, 64, of Tarzana, was a public relations exec who worked on the 2009 No on Measure I campaign, opposing the store that became Neiman Marcus in Walnut Creek.

A public relations executive who was prominent in opposing a city ballot measure in Walnut Creek three years ago has pleaded guilty to distribution of child pornography in Los Angeles.

In a U.S. District Court plea agreement last week, Al Abrams, 64, of Tarzana, acknowledged collecting more than 600 images of child pornography over the course of more than 10 years.

Abrams was a No on Measure I spokesman in 2009 when Walnut Creekers voted to authorize Broadway Plaza owner Macerich to build a two-story store that became, in the spring of 2012, Neiman Marcus. The measure passed with a 71.4 percent yes vote, according to BallotPedia. Abrams is quoted in this 2009 piece in the Crazy in Suburbia blog verbally sparring with the PR campaign on the other side of Measure I.

Prosecutors in the federal case said they would recommend Abrams receive a sentence of between five and eight years.
