Sex Offender Registration- Not Required

Client was convicted in San Mateo County of two counts of Sexual Battery (California Penal Code Section 243.4(d)) and Battery (California Penal Code Section 242). Client had been required to register as a sex offender pursuant to Penal Code Section 290 for 16 years. Despite several hearings where the District Attorney adamantly opposed our petition, we convinced the court to grant our petition and the client obtained his Certificate of Rehabilitation, relieving him of the obligation to register as a sex offender pursuant to Penal Code 290.
