A recent rape has shocked the city, surrounding areas and school administrators. Three teens in Richmond California were arrested on charges of gang raping a 15-year-old girl outside a high school dance while as many as two dozen people stood around watching and not calling the police. The defendants are all under 18 and did not enter pleas in their case. The case is so serious that the defendants wore bullet proof vests in court for fear that they could be shot.
A sex crime such as this could lead to decades in prison for any defendants, including those under the age of 18. These individuals were reportedly recorded on cell phones, with people standing around laughing during the incident. These individuals are charged with an assort of crimes, including rape, sexual penetration with a foreign object, robbery and assault causing great bodily harm. Los angeles sex crime attorneys in such cases would have to work incredibly hard to prove innocence, since the jury, public and even the courts would be biased in such a salacious case.
While this incident happened in Northern California, sex crime cases can be no less publicized by the press. Having a skilled los angeles sex crime defense attorney working for you can help protect against a biased court, biased jury and intense public scrutiny. For example, even though this case is being made very public, the evidence has yet to be examined and the trial has yet to happen. These individuals are worthy of a fair trial under the U.S. Constitution, which people often forget in such a case.
