San Jose Client Charged with Child Molestation and Child Abuse- No Charges Filed

November 2014

In a major victory in a San Jose case, our client was under investigation for an alleged Child Molestation (Penal Code Section 288(a)) and Child Abuse (Penal Code Section 273a). After putting together an aggressive investigation and thorough mitigation case,and following numerous contacts with the San Jose Police Department and the Santa Clara County District Attorney's Office, the District Attorney's office declined to file charges.

“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.”
