Trying to find a Van Nuys Sex Crime Attorney to defend you in a sex crime case can be difficult, but going to jail and having your name placed on the sex offender list could be the end of your life as you know it. A teacher in Van Nuys will soon find out just how complicated a sex crime charge is. A 29 year old teacher at Van Nuys's Montclair College Preparatory School was arrested for engaging in a sexual relationship with a 15 year old girl. Gazi Kabir is facing years in prison and worse for his actions after being investigated for conducting a sexual relationship by periodically going to the girl's home for sexual activity when she was alone. The school was not giving out any further information. The man was a history teacher at the school, but no further facts are known. There could be other alleged victims in this situation. Past cases of teachers in Los Angeles getting arrested for sex crimes often turn up more than one victim, meaning some teachers are considered "predators."
While any sex crime can lead to jail time, being in a position of authority, such as a teacher or coach, can lead to increased jail time, fines and other penalties. As a teacher, this man allegedly abused a position of trust and power, and the girl is quite young. Different ages will lead to different penalties, meaning that sexual abuse of a 7 year old will lead to a longer jail sentence than a sexual relationship with a 17 year old. Obviously, while a 17 year old is still underage, she is more likely to be able to make an informed decision. Any 7 year old in a sexual situation is being taken advantage of completely. Courts, prosecutors and juries will look at extenuating circumstances of any sex crime in order to see if increased penalties are necessary. Only a knowledgeable lawyer will know how to persuade a jury to observe the facts in the case, and not the accusations.
