Marin Man Accused of Child Abuse Has Charges Reduced - No Jail Time

Client was accused of whipping a four-year-old child, leaving marks. Client was NOT a U.S. citizen and likely would have been deported and forever separated from his three children if convicted of child abuse. After months of investigation and aggressive negotiation with the DA, Mr. Chazin convinced the DA to let his client plead to simple battery with no jail time. Our client continues to raise his children today.

  • Result: NO JAIL TIME

“The death penalty is a lie, a misguided mistake born of anger and frustration. Capital punishment has become a perverse monument to inequality, to how some lives matter and others do not. It is a violent example of how we protect and value the rich and abandon and devalue the poor. The death penalty is a grim, disturbing shadow formed by the legacy of racial apartheid and bias against the poor that condemns the disfavored among us, but corrupts us all. It’s the perverse symbol elected officials use to strengthen their ‘tough on crime’ reputations and distract us from confronting the causes of violence. It is finally the enemy of grace, redemption and all of us who recognize that each person is more than their worse act.”
