Posted by Dmitry Gorin | Dec 21, 2010 | 0 Comments

When a Los Angeles Sex Crime Defense Attorney represents someone, he knows that the charges are probably fairly embarrassing and graphic. However, a highly skilled lawyer will defend his client no matter how complex, difficult or shocking the case may be. Sex crimes require a lawyer who understands the law and who can defend someone facing decades in jail if convicted. In South Los Angeles a day care center operator has been accused of lewd acts with a 13 year old. The woman is accused of having sex with her teenage godson in a van. Chelsea Nichole McClelland was arrested near the Santa Monica Freeway and La Brea Avenue and is charged with suspicion of multiple instances of lewd acts with a child. She is being held in lieu of $400,000 bail in Van Nuys. She operated a day care center out of her home according to the Los Angeles Police Department. When resident reported seeing a van parked in the Mid-City area, a boy was found inside and he told them he was 18. However, after the LAPD sex crime detectives interviewed him, he acknowledged he was only 13. Some of the lewd acts took place allegedly when the boy was only 12 years old. The woman has three biological children of her own and is the legal guardian of a fourth. In another case that required a Los Angeles Sex Crime Attorney, a man who taught school in Cambodia was sentenced to nearly nine years in Los Angeles to a federal prison for traveling abroad to have sex with a 14 year old girl. The 61 year old man was sentenced to 104 months in jail and was ordered to pay nearly $10,000 in restitution to the victim. The man pleaded guilty in September as part of a plea agreement to one count of engaging in illicit sexual conduct with a minor in Cambodia. He had a sexual relationship with the girl for five months in 2008 while he was teaching there at a private school. He actually had a "financial arrangement" with the girl's family and gave them food and about $200 a month .
