Know Your Rights

California Penal Code section 288 (a), is punishable up to eight years in state prison for each felony count for for lewd or lascivious acts with a minor who is under the age of 14 years of age. Each sex act is a separate felony charge. Therefore, a person could be charged with numerous felony counts for conduct occuring on the same day.

If the allegation against a family member, it is often alleged that this has occurred over a period of time. It is not uncommon that prosecutors file 15 to 20 felony counts for conduct arising out of only a few alleged incidents. Bail is generally set at $100,000. per alleged felony count of Penal Code 288 (a) according to the standard bail schedule. An allegation of violating Penal Code section 288.7 carries a presumptive bail of $250,000. Any allegation of sexual penetration carries a presumptive bail of $100,000. A defendant facing multiple counts could easily be required to post bail in the amount of $1,000,000.00 or more.

Whenever, a client is accused of participating in three or more acts of child molestation with the same child over a period of time not less than three months, that client is now exposed to greater punishment. Pursuant to California Penal Code section 288.5, the accused is now facing incarceration in state prison up to 16 years for each alleged violation of penal code section 288.5.

Certain Sex Charges carry punishment of life in prisonment.

The client is looking at 25 years to life under Penal Code Section 667.61 subdivision (a), if the client has a prior conviction for a violation of penal code section 264.1, 288(b), 289(a) or 288(a) unless the defendant qualifies for probation under subdivision (c) of Section 1203.066.

In addition under California Penal Code section 288.7, any person 18 years of age or older who engages in sexual intercourse or sodomy with a child who is 10 years of age or younger is guilty of a felony and shall be punished by imprisonment in the state prison for a term of 25 years to life.

Also under California Penal Code section 288.7, any person 18 years of age or older who engages in oral copulation or sexual penetration, as defined in Section 289, with a child who is 10 years of age or younger is guilty of a felony and shall be punished by imprisonment in the state prison for a term of 15 years to life.

The client is looking at 25 to life if two or more circumstances involving items listed under subdivision (e).

The client is looking at 15 years to life pursuant to Penal Code section 667.61 subdivision (e) if any one of the following are present (1) Kidnapping was involved, (2) It occurred during the commission of a burglary (3) great bodiliy injury was inflicted, (4) personal use of a dangerous or deadly weapon or firearm, (5) There are multiple victims (6) Engaging in tying or binding of the victim or another person, (7) A controlled substance was administered by force, violence or fear.


Offenses that require mandatory registration as a sex offender

Under California Penal Code section 290, life time registration as a sex offender is required for the following: child molestation, rape, sodomy, lewd or lascivious acts, oral copulation, sexual battery, indecent exposure, annoying or molesting child under 18. Those convicted are required to register with the chief of police of the city he or she is residing on an annual basis. Any person convicted of a felony or juvenile adjudication who willfully fails to register is guilty of a felony and shall serve punishment by imprisonment in the state prison for 16 months, or two or three years. However, because the underlying prior felony sex offense is often a “strike’ this punishment is often enhanced to either double the base term or 25 years to life if the person has two or more prior strikes.

Many sex offenses are strikes

Under the three strikes law passed in California, many felony sex offenses are listed as strikes and carry severe consequences.

Jessica's Law requires a GPS for life and can make you jobless and homeless

Proposition 83, commonly referred to as Jessica's Law was passed by voters in November 2006. It prohibits registered sex offenders from residing within 2,000 feet of any school and park where children congregate and mandates Global Positioning Satellite (GPS) supervision for life.

As a result of Jessica's law many sex offender have declared themselves homeless or transient. Also parolees must re-register with their local police department every 30 days.

In reality, many registered sex offenders find it difficult to comply with the residency requirements mandated by Jessica's Law. When the Department of Corrections attempts to find transitional housing for parolees, the information obtained by local police is often leaked to the media prompting immediate protests from local residents. In other instances, the police department and the local politicians lead organized protests against certain sex offenders from living within their city.

In addition, an unintended consequence is that many registered sex offenders find it difficult to find and maintain employment while trying to comply with the mandates of Jessica's Law.

Moreover, although the parole period is often only three years, the lifetime GPS Supervision really makes this a lifetime of parole supevision.

Even if you are granted probation, the court may make you wear a GPS monitor during your entire length of probation.

Under California Penal Code section 1202.8, every person who has been assessed with the State Authorized Risk Assemssment Tool for Sex Offenders (SARRATO) and who have scored a risk level of high shall be put on electronically mointored GPS while on probation unless the court orders otherwise.

Pursuant to Penal Code 290.04 to 290.08, the SARATSO Review Committee has selected the Static 99 Risk Assessment Scale for adult males who are required as sex offenders.

The Static 99 consists of 10 items and produces estimates of future risk based upon the number of risk factors present. Risk factors included are prior sexual offenses, having commited a current nonsexual violent offense, having a history of violence, the number of previous sentencing dates, age less than 25 years old, having male victims, having never lived with a lover for two continuous years, having a history of non contact sex offenses, having unrelated victims, and having stranger victims. Any probationer who has a STATIC 99 score of 6 points or higher will be monitored electronically with a global positioning system. The lowest score is 0 and the maximum score possible is 12 points. A score of to 1 is considered low risk. A score of 2 to 3 is considered Medium- Low Risk, a Score of 4 to 5 is considered Medium High Risk and a score of 6 to 12 is considered high risk.

California's Megans Law

California Law (Assembly Bill 488 , Nicole Parra) now provides the public with internet access to detailed information about registered sex

offenders in their communities.

Child suggestibility

Police have been trained to engage in manipulative interviewing techniques to get statements they want to hear to build a case against you. When interviewing minors, it has been shown that repetitive and suggestive interviewing techniques will allow the police to get a statement they want to hear. Unfortunately these interviewing techniques will not get reliable and trustworthy statements. Studies have been shown that children can be influenced to say things that did not occur. This can be done just in the manner a child is questioned.

Forensic medical doctors & psychologists

We have some of the most reputable forensic medical consultants and psychologists.

Our medical doctors review medical records to help determine whether the medical records are consistent with the accusers claims. They have graduated from some of the top medical schools in the nation and qualify as experts in the California Superior Courts. By looking at the medical records, we can determine whether there is any corroboration to the claims made against the client.

Our psychologists have also qualified as expert witness in courts. They are very familiar with the isues invovling child suggestability. In addition, these experts have solid credentials having trained police detectives in areas involving child molestation.

What the District Attorney must prove to get a conviction of a charge of Penal Code section 288 (a).

Every person who willfully commits any lewd or lascivious act upon or with the body , or any part or member thereof, of a child under the age of 14 years, with the specific intent of arousing, appealing to or gratifying the lust or passions or sexual desires of theat person or the child, is guility of the crime of commiting a lewd or lasciviious act upon the body of a child in violation of penal code section 288, subdivision (a).

A "lewd or lascivious act" is defined as any touching of the body of a child under the age of 14 years with the specific intent to arouse, appeal to, or gratify the sexual desires of either party. To constitue a lewd or lascivious act, it is not necessary that the bare skin be touched. The touching may be through the clothing of the child.

The law does not require as an essential element of the crime that the lust, passions, or sexual desires of either of such persons be actually aroused, appealed to or gratified.

What is not a defense to a charge of penal code section 288 (a)

It is no defense to this charge that a child under the age of 14 years may have consented to the alleged lewd or lascivious act.

A resonable mistake as to age is not a defense to a charge of child molestation.

Motive to falsely accuse the client

Mere impeachment of a child witness is generally not enough to get an acquittal. Many jurors often feel sympathetic toward a child witness. That is why we have investigators to look into the issue of motive. Is there a financial motive? Is this a bitter divorce with custody issues? Is the witness a compulsive liar or one that constantly needs to be the center of attention? Has the witnessed been coached to say certain allegations?
