Any Los Angeles rape is obviously a serious issue, but for the victim and the alleged perpetrator. Sex crimes can lead to serious prison time, long periods of probation, fines and even being placed on the California Sex Offense Registry. A recent sex crime case involved a government official and a great deal of intrigue. The general manager of the Los Angeles Department of Building and Safety has been placed on administrative leave by the mayor. This happened because the general manager is under a Los Angeles police investigation into a rape allegation made against him. In this sex crime, a woman alleged that the man sexually assaulted her at his downtown condo. Los Angeles police are current investigating these allegations, however the man's Los Angeles criminal defense attorney is stressing that the accusations have not been proven. Allegedly, the woman went with friends on a "bar hopping" trip and after several drinks she blacked out. When she woke up the next morning, she says she was being raped by a man she later identified as the general manager. In a sex crime trial, dealing with the jury could be difficult, and a Los Angeles criminal defense attorney must navigate the courtroom without offending the jury. If he portrays the victim as a tramp, the jury could turn on his client. If the attorney is too kind, the jury could wonder if he knows his client is guilty.
