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.

Solicitation

Solicitation Defense Attorney in Sacramento, CA

Under California law, solicitation for prostitution is illegal and takes place when someone offers another person monetary compensation (or goods or services) in return for sexual favors.

Solicitation also applies to the reverse, where a person agrees to accept monetary compensation (or goods or services) in return for performing sexual acts.

A person does not have to be charged with prostitution to be charged with solicitation – meaning, that the sexual acts do not necessarily have to actually be carried out for the crime of solicitation to occur.

Solicitation is a misdemeanor; however, just like any crime, it is not a minor one as it can carry with it steep consequences such as:

  • significant fines
  • probation
  • county jail time of up to a year

If you are a repeat offender, jail time becomes mandatory. Additionally, you could have your driver’s license suspended for thirty days or restricted for up to six months if the solicitation occurred within 1,000 feet of a private residence and with the use of a vehicle.

Fighting Solicitation Charges

With an accomplished defense lawyer who is knowledgeable about prostitution and solicitation laws in California on your side, you may be able to successfully defend yourself against the charges against you.

There is potential for the charges to be dismissed completely or reduced.

Potential defense strategies include but are not limited to:

  • The accused did not have specific intent to become involved in prostitution 
  • There is not sufficient evidence to convict the accused of solicitation
  • Entrapment by law enforcement

If you don’t retain an attorney to help you fight the solicitation charges you’re facing, you may end up with with jail time or a permanent criminal record.

Don’t let a minor offense change your life.

Schedule an appointment for a consultation with Jennifer Mouzis today to find out how you can begin building a solid defense that will withstand prosecution tactics in court.

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.
