Theft Charges for Port Hueneme Women
Ventura County Sheriff’s Department officers arrested two Port Hueneme women for a series of vehicle burglaries in Los Angeles County and Ventura County in April. Prosecutors charged the women with theft, burglary and identity theft. In addition, one of the women faces child endangerment charges because officers found a two-year-old child in the house, along with two ounces of methamphetamine.

Detectives said that the women made purchases with stolen credit cards. Detectives used purchase records to find the suspects. The women also stole cash and other valuables from at least 10 vehicles in Thousand Oaks, Oak Park and various locations in Los Angeles County. An Oxnard man at the home faces a misdemeanor drug possession charge.

Domestic Violence Restraining Order Nets Oxnard Man
Camarillo police arrested an Oxnard man and charged him with violating a domestic violence restraining order. Police investigated the man after receiving a complaint from the subject’s ex-wife that he had violated a restraining order.

They investigated the complaint and found that the man had likely violated the court order as many as six times in a six-week period in multiple Ventura County jurisdictions. During those encounters, police said that the man threatened his former wife.

Prosecutors charged him with felony stalking and four misdemeanor counts of violating the restraining order. He will appear in Ventura County Superior Court again on May 8.

Oxnard Domestic Violence Lawyer

Domestic abuse cases can be complicated. In addition to charges that may arise from a particular incident, you may become the subject of a restraining order. Given the specifics of your circumstances, adhering to the terms of a restraining order is essential. It also underscores the need to work with an experienced domestic violence lawyer like Robert Helfend.

Prosecutors in California can file domestic abuse and stalking charges as felonies or misdemeanors. The distinction is important because felony convictions put you at an ongoing risk of long-term incarceration, thanks to California’s Three Strikes Law. It also provides your lawyer with the opportunity to reduce charges against you. This can mean the difference between getting on with your life and incarceration.

An experienced criminal defense attorney can help you work through the adjudication process. You want the right results. Sometimes, the only way to achieve that is with the help of an aggressive criminal defense attorney.

Don’t work with an inexperienced attorney, especially when your freedom is on the line.

Murder sentence in 1997 case
Murder sentence in 1997 case
A Ventura County judge sentenced a Port Hueneme man to life in prison for a 1997 murder. The man will not be eligible for parole. The victim, a 16-year-old-boy, died of stab wounds he received in his home. The victim and his mother surprised a burglar upon returning to their Ventura home.

The case went unsolved for more than 17 years, but advances in DNA testing finally produced a usable DNA profile. The teen confronted the burglar, and was stabbed three times. He died at the hospital.

Based on physical evidence at the scene, the defendant admitted to being in the home, but denied stabbing the boy. Controversy surrounded the case because the defendant’s DNA was not on the knife, which was found near the crime scene.

Computer analysis matched the defendant’s DNA profile to the crime scene evidence in 2014. He is now a married father of four. The defendant plans to appeal his conviction.
