A horrible tragedy occurred recently, highlighting why it is so important to have a Los Angeles Sex Crime Defense Attorney working hard on your behalf to keep you out of prison. A registered sex offender was murdered by his cellmate while serving a 30 year sentence for sexually molesting a girl in 2008. It is widely known that sex offenders are easy prey in prison, as inmates and even guards go out of their way to continue any punishment they feel fits the crime. This means that more than just freedom is on the line for anyone charged with a sex offense. When a Los Angeles Sex Crime Defense Attorney represents someone facing serious sex crime accusations, he understands the dangers that individual will face if he or she is thrown in jail. In this case, Jaime Elizondo was found dead in his jail cell at High Desert State Prison in Susanville in December 2010. It appeared that there were "suspicious circumstances" according to Lt. Charles Hahn. An investigation is under way to find out exactly what happened. The prime suspect in the case is Steven Cisneros who has been placed in the prison's administrative segregation unit pending the investigation. Elizondo was put in jail in September after being convicted of "lewd and lascivious acts on a child under 14 with prior felony convictions." He had exposed himself to a girl inside an Arcadia bookstore before the most recent conviction. He arrived int he prison on November 30, the same day his alleged attacker arrived. Cisneros was serving a sentence of 56 years to life for murder with prior felony convictions. The District Attorney is investigating the crime as well and various other legal bodies are lending a hand. As you can see, being a sex offender in prison can make you a target to other prisoners. The punishment never seems to end for anyone charged with a sex crime. The general public considers sex offenders as lower than dirt, the courts have increasingly harsh sentences, and even fellow convicts and criminals judge them guilty. Without a skilled Los Angeles Sex Crime Defense Attorney working for you, you could be all alone and facing a lifetime of cruel and unusual punishment. If you have been charged with, arrested for or accused of a sex crime, contact Kestenbaum Eisner & Gorin, LLP by calling 877-781-1570. We can help analyze your case and be on your side, even when the world seems to be against you. Tagged as: sex crime accusations
