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.

Prostitution

Prostitution Defense Attorney in Sacramento, CA

The definition of prostitution under California law is the act of engaging in sexual relations with another person for money or for other goods or services.

In addition, you do not have to actually commit prostitution to be charged with it. You can also be charged with prostitution simply for offering or soliciting prostitution, or agreeing to it.

Although prostitution is legal in some other areas of the United States, it remains illegal in the state of California. If you are caught and charged for prostitution, you will be aggressively prosecuted.

Prostitution is recognized as a misdemeanor, however, being convicted of this crime can impose:

  • penalties of up to $1,000 in fines
  • up to six months in county jail

Although California law does not dictate that those convicted of prostitution or solicitation register as a sex offender, a judge could order that you do so as a part of your sentence. This can make finding a job or even living in a certain area extremely difficult for you.

Defense Strategies Against Prostitution

There are many defense strategies against prostitution that can be utilized by a skilled and experienced criminal defense lawyer:

  • Was there enough evidence to arrest you for the crime?
  • Is there enough evidence to convict you?

There may not be, and a good defense attorney will investigate whether or not law enforcement truly has enough evidence against you.

If you’re facing charges of prostitution or solicitation, your first step should be to contact a competent criminal defense attorney who knows how to craft a sound defense strategy.

Jennifer Mouzis has experience defending prostitution cases and the skills necessary to help you prevail 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.
