In order to become an effective Los Angeles Sex Crime Defense Attorney, a lawyer must understand the law, the courts and public opinion. Having a savvy lawyer working for you can keep you out of prison, free from fines and off of the California Sex Offender Registry. Two extremely high profile Los Angeles Sex Crime cases demonstrate the extreme need to higher a skilled lawyer to protect yourself due to the extreme consequences and punishments. In Long Beach, the former head of the state's largest mental hospital is being charged with molesting his adopted son for over a decade. The man is now 62 years old and is facing 35 counts of sexually abusing one of his four foster sons from 1992 to 2004. He was the head of the Napa State Hospital but was fired after revelations of his arrest. The prosecution is stating that at least 12 other men, including another of his foster sons, are claiming to be victims of sexual abuse. In a national sexual assault case, an amazing example of how vital a lawyer truly is, a 31 year old registered sex offender pleaded guilty to the slaying of two teenage girls in northern San Diego. The man previously served five years in prison for beating and molesting a 13 year old girl. He pleaded guilty to murdering Chelsea King and Amber Dubois, both teenagers, during an attempt to rape them. He is being sentenced to life in prison instead of potentially the death penalty in exchange for his plea. To further demonstrate the extreme need of a attorney for anyone charged with such a violation, the penalties include:
- Large Fines
- Court Ordered Counseling
- Community Service
- Mandatory Sex Offender Registration (for life)
The list of illegal sex acts is extensive, but much of the focus on sex crimes include acts with a minor (e.g. anyone under 18 years old).
