Martin Rothschild wants computers back, claims clients' privacy is being violated

The DA says at least 30 images were on Rothschild's computers and his sentence could have been more severe had he not pleaded guilty.
Syracuse (WSYR-TV) -- Martin Rothschild, a well known personal injury lawyer, admitted last week to being in possession of child pornography.

Now, the lawyer representing Rothschild is arguing to have the computers returned that were seized from Rothschild’s office and home.

Rothschild argues that his clients’ privacy is being violated.

As part of a plea deal, Rothschild gave up his long-standing law practice, turning over pending cases to attorney John Cherundolo, who is an acting Supreme Court Justice.

Rothschild will be sentenced to at least three years in prison, but could face up to seven years when he is sentenced in June.

The DA says at least 30 images were on Rothschild's computers and his sentence could have been more severe had he not pleaded guilty.

Rothschild is being held in lieu of $100,000 bail and scheduled to be sentenced on June 20.

He’ll also be required to register as a sex offender.
