Fighting back against Racial Profiling

Anthony Hernandez was arrested and spent a month in custody because of racial profiling and presumptions by the arresting officer. It might have been far worse had it not been for the persistence of his defense attorney, who kept demanding that prosecutors turn over body camera footage of the incident from the arresting officer. Once the officer turned it over to the prosecutor’s office, almost immediately the Sacramento DA dropped the charges. The Vanguard speaks to Attorney Jennifer Mouzis about the arrest and the illegal activities of the Sacramento Police.

Criminal Threats

Criminal Threats Attorney in Sacramento, CA

According to California law, a criminal threat is defined asthreatening to kill or cause great bodily injury to someone if any of the following apply:

  • The person is reasonably afraid for their safety or the safety of their immediate family
  • The threat is so specific and unequivocal as to give gravity of purpose and an immediate prospect of execution
  • The threat is communicated either verbally, in writing or via an electronic device

You can be charged for a criminal threat regardless of whether or not you actually intend to make good on the threat, and regardless of whether or not you have the means to actually carry out the threat.

Fighting a charge for a criminal threat requires the expertise of a skilled defense lawyer who is knowledgeable about criminal threats law in the state of California.

A qualified and capable attorney knows what questions to ask and what strategies the prosecution will use to get a guilty verdict. She will know how best to counter them.

Defense Strategies For Criminal Threats

A sound defense against criminal threat charges involves looking at all facets of the case and all possible scenarios. There are many possible defense strategies against criminal threat charges, and Jennifer Mouzis will consider how these strategies can be applied to your case.

  • No threat actually took place and the accuser is making false allegations
  • The threat was vague or unclear
  • It is implausible that the accuser would be reasonably afraid for their safety or the safety of their immediate family because of the threat

If you’ve been charged with a criminal threat, the first step you need to take is to meet with an experienced criminal defense lawyer for a consultation on your case.

Jennifer Mouzis is available to discuss your case with you and will devote the time and effort necessary for a successful outcome.

What Is The Difference Between A Misdemeanor And A Felony?

There are key differences between a misdemeanor and a felony in the judicial system. A misdemeanor is a minor criminal offense, whereas a felony is a much more serious, usually violent, criminal offense. Examples of felony violations include:felony violations
  • murder
  • possession of dangerous drugs for sale
  • robberyrape
Examples of misdemeanor violations are:
  • petty theft
  • driving on a suspended license and drunk driving
The essential difference is the severity of punishment. A felony conviction can lead you in state prison, but a misdemeanor will only have you do time in the local or country jail. A felony can involve a fine up to $10,000 and a sentence of up to life in prison or even the death sentence for special circumstance murder. A misdemeanor is generally punishable by a $1,000 fine and a maximum of one year in count jail. In addition to the longer punishment, a person convicted of a felony: loses the right to vote, cannot possess firearms, cannot obtain certain licenses, such as a hunting or a fishing license and is also required to disclose a conviction when applying for jobs.
