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.

“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.”
