An Oxnard man will spend nine years in prison for a sex crimes conviction. The man pleaded guilty to possessing child pornography while being a registered sex offender.
The 36-year-old man has a prior conviction for committing lewd and lascivious acts on a child under 14. He was on parole at the time of his arrest. Police searched the man’s home three times as part of his parole conditions. During all three searches, the man either broke or hid his phone. Police suspected that the man used his phone to stream pornography from the Internet.
They confiscated the broken devices and used forensic analysis to confirm the man’s Internet activities. Investigators also recovered evidence from the broken devices. According to their analysis, the man used the phones to stream pornography for 18 months before police arrested him.
Oxnard sex crimes lawyer
This case illustrates the challenges that convicted sex offenders face. Registered sex offenders must frequently check in with local law enforcement. Compliance searches are often a condition of parole. Registered sex offenders also face difficulty finding employment and housing. When you face sex crimes charges, hire an experienced sex crimes lawyer like Robert Helfend.
Mr. Helfend has more than 30 years of experience in criminal courtroom defense. He will fight aggressively for your rights throughout the judicial process. Unlike some criminal defense lawyers, he does not shy away from taking sex crimes cases. Mr. Helfend does not judge his clients based on how they’re charged. He simply works hard to get the charges against his clients reduced or dropped. Even when the evidence against you looks bad, a good defense attorney may be able to get that evidence excluded. If not conducted properly, searches can produce inadmissible evidence. A good defense attorney can use that to your advantage.
Don’t settle for an attorney who doesn’t want to take your case, or won’t fight for your rights. Contact Robert Helfend or call toll-free at (800) 834-6434, (805) 273-5611, (310) 456-3317 or (818) 591-2809 for an immediate consultation on your Ventura County sex crimes case.
