Solicitation of Prostitution
Los Angeles Solicitation of Prostitution Attorney
HOW CAN YOU SAVE YOUR REPUTATION, FUTURE, CAREER AND REPUTATION IF YOU ARE CHARGED WITH A SOLICITATION OF PROSTITUTION CASE (Penal Code Section 647)?
I have been defending these cases for 25 years and have seen what can happen to a person’s reputation if they have to take a conviction for a solicitation sex offense. It is literally a personal and professional disaster! Fortunately I have recently been having great success at obtaining results that ultimately protect my client’s reputation, job and future. There has been a political shift in the local Los Angeles courts that actually works to the client’s advantage. The key is having an attorney that has the know how and skill to get you the result you simply must have!
There is a light at the end of the tunnel in these cases. Many times the prosecutors can be convinced to give you a diversionary resolution. If this is accomplished, then in the end you will be able to get your case dismissed. You will have to be on probation for a period of time and jump through some hoops, but will ultimately get the result you must have. For those of you that must have a conviction free record, come and sit down in the privacy of my office and we can discuss what it will take to get you the result you seek. You will have to do some work and remain arrest free for a period of time, but in the end you will be able to move on with your life in a positive direction, free from the restrictions the criminal court system can place on you.
CAN SOLICITATION OF PROSTITUTION CASES BE FOUGHT AND WON IN LOS ANGELES COUNTY?
Any criminal case can be fought in a jury trial and won. However, in order to be successful, we will need an angle that can be utilized to up end the prosecution’s case. In evaluating what can be used to win a criminal case, things should be looked at on a case by case basis and evaluated from a common sense approach. Specifically, in solicitation of prostitution cases, the question becomes, “what evidence will the government bring to bear in order to prove you guilty?” Sometimes that means that an undercover police officer will come and testify to what you said to them that amounted to a crime on the subject day and time when you were arrested.
In “sting operation” cases, an undercover female officer will interact with a male and basically try and get the male to agree to be involved in a sexual act for money. Once the agreement is made, the crime is complete. I have always been frustrated that the police will use a two way radio in order to listen to the conversation between the female officer and the defendant. However, they will very rarely have a tape recording of the conversation. Hence, it ends up being the police’s word against the arrested person’s. Plain and simple, in order to win, you need a complete defense to the crime and an attorney who can execute a plan for success.
As indicated above, one good thing that we are recently seeing an angle which permits us to convince the prosecutors to give a person one opportunity to earn a dismissal. This window of sunlight is huge in these type of cases and must be capitalized upon so your record can remain free of such an embarrassing and life crippling charge.
