Police arrested a Moorpark man and a Simi Valley man, both for failing to register as sex offenders. Brian Campbell, 26, of Moorpark had been convicted of possessing child pornography, and had failed to register as a sex offender after having moved to a new address in November 2015. He was arrested on outstanding warrants for drug related crimes. His bond was set at $40,000.
Pedrito Vicente, of Simi Valley, moved in March 2015 and failed to register as a sex offender with authorities. He had previously been convicted of two counts of child molestation. His bond was set at $35,000.

Mr. Helfend is an experienced criminal defense attorney who works exclusively with clients charged with criminal offenses, like child pornography and other sexual offenses. Mr. Helfend will work hard to protect your rights within the judicial process. At the same time, he will work to get the charges against you reduced or dropped altogether.
Convictions on sex offenses like child pornography create a long trail of consequences that you’ll be dealing with, often for the remainder of your life. In addition to incarceration, upon release, you’ll be required to register as a sex offender, no matter where you go – and often for the rest of your life. Even if you leave the state following your release, California’s sex offender registration requirements go right along with you. You’ll be required to register as a sex offender in your new location.
Registration on any state’s sex offender registry will make it difficult to find appropriate housing and employment, and you may have other restrictions involving where you live, what kind of work you can perform, and even whether you can have access to a computer.
Mr. Helfend has established a reputation as a fair but aggressive defense attorney and can help you defend yourself successfully, even when the case against you appears strong. Don’t gamble with your freedom.
