Petition to Terminate Sex Offender Registration - Granted
Our client in Placer County was convicted of a felony violation of Penal Code § 243.4(d) - (Sexual Battery) that had required him to register as a sex offender pursuant to Penal Code section 290 for more than 25 years. Despite the District Attorney's efforts to block our petition (which included arguments that our client had committed several new offenses in the interim, that the victim was vulnerable and that the client had never completed a Board Certified sex offender treatment program), the court GRANTED our client's petition to be removed from the 290 sex offender registration list under Penal Code section 290.5, recognizing our client's recent clean record, various other factors in mitigation that we brought to the court's attention and an excellent psycho-sexual evaluation that we arranged for the client.
