Richmond Client Charged With Felony Violation of Oral Copulation of Sexual Penetration with Child- Charges Reduced

Client in Richmond was charged with a felony violation of Penal Code Section 288.7(b)
– (Oral Copulation or Sexual Penetration with Child 10 Years Old or younger) which
carries a sentence of 15 – life in prison. After putting together an aggressive
investigation, hiring a top-notch forensic psychologist and presenting a thorough
mitigation case and then aggressively negotiating the case with the Contra Costa County
District Attorney's office, we were able to negotiate the case down so our client wouldn't
have to register as a sex-offender pursuant to Penal Code Section 290 and was
immediately released from custody after entering a plea to a violation of Penal Code
Section 273a(a) – (felony, Child Endangerment) and sentenced to 3 years probation.


“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.”
