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.

Updated March 15, 2017:

1. Not guilty verdict by a jury after a jury trial where the client was charged with attempted first degree murder with a gang enhancement and alleging the client personally used a knife to stab the victim multiple times. The client was acquitted and went home that day to his son, wife and family.
2. Not guilty verdict by a jury after a jury trial where the client was wrongfully accused of murder and felony child abuse resulting in the death of a child under the age of eight years old. The client was accused of murdering her three month old son. The client was acquitted quickly by the jury on all counts and the true perpetrator, her boyfriend, was convicted on both counts. My client was released the day of the verdict and went home to her older daughter, mother, father and siblings. 
3. Authored a New Trial Motion for a client who was convicted of robbery and kidnapping for robbery after guilty jury verdict using another attorney. After the jury verdict, and before the Motion for New Trial, the client was facing a mandatory sentence of fifteen years to life in state prison. However, because our Motion for New Trial was granted, both the client and his co-defendant were able to obtain a sentence of nine years state prison where he is now eligible for FIRE Camp, a program in prison that can significantly increase credits for time served so he can get out earlier.
4. There was a win in the California Supreme Court where I preserved the issue for appeal to the California Supreme court that will reduce our then fifteen year old juvenile client’s sentence from the current sentence of fifteen years to life in the state prison to six years in the state prison where he will also be eligible for FIRE Camp , a program in prison that can significantly reduce credits for time served so that he can get out before he is even twenty one years old.

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.
