A Long Beach man was sentenced to 21 years in prison after having been convicted of multiple felonies involving domestic violence , assault, human trafficking, pandering and pimping. Simi Valley police worked with multiple other agencies in Southern California to identify and arrest Andrew Jordan.
According to police and prosecutors, Jordan forced multiple women into prostitution. Jordan would take the women to areas known to be frequented by prostitutes and order them to provide sex acts in exchange for money. He required the women to earn a certain amount each day, and monitored the time they spent with clients, and the areas in which they worked. When the women did not comply or did not meet his demands, he would severely physically assault them.
Domestic Violence Lawyer
Domestic violence is normally thought of as a “family” crime, but you do not need to be related to a person to be charged with domestic assault. If you’ve been accused of domestic assault or spousal abuse, you need the assistance of an experienced domestic violence lawyer like Robert Helfend.
Domestic violence charges can be added to other felony counts against you in order to give prosecutors a chance to enhance the charges against you or extend a sentence, if you’re convicted. Since domestic violence is a “violent felony” prosecutors can also use it to trigger lifetime imprisonment under California’s Three Strikes Law, if you have prior felony convictions on your record.
Don’t risk your freedom on an inexperienced criminal defense attorney. Mr. Helfend has more than 30 years of criminal defense experience in Ventura County and throughout Southern California.
