ASACP Presented Its 2005 Service Recognition Award To Lawrence G. Walters

Los Angeles - (January 6, 2005)
- ASACP (asacp.org) is the organization that helps the adult site industry make a difference in the battle against child pornography.

ASACP presented its 2005 Annual Service Recognition Award to First Amendment Attorney Lawrence G Walters Esq. in appreciation for his service to ASACP and his dedication to the protection of children. The presentation was made during the XBiz Awards at 2005 Internext in Las Vegas.

ASACP is an association in transition with limited resources. Larry saw the progress ASACP was making in its mission and offered his services on a pro-bono basis to help guide ASACP during this critical growth period. Most associations would not have the benefit of such expertise. When legal questions arise or before we implement new services, we ask Larry for his opinion. He is always available to us. We very much appreciate Larry`s help, said Joan Irvine, executive director, ASACP.
