Sex Offenses Case Results

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.

“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.”
