In addition, attorney Dorado has successfully obtained certificates of rehabilitation and expungements of sex crimes criminal charges (clearing the defendant's criminal history of sex crimes in California).
It is a fact that sex crimes criminal charges are among the most complicated, heinous, and emotionally involved cases in the entire criminal justice system. Often times sex cases involve Child Protective Services (CPS), novel scientific evidence, unidentified and protected witnesses, sealed warrants, distasteful evidence, biased jurors, and complicated sentencing structures.
Furthermore, the defendant is often times fighting his or her sex case from jail as bail is generally set very high in sex crimes cases.
Making the defense of sex crimes even more complicated and delicate is the fact that initial statements from the alleged sex crime victim are often the product of improper and biased questioning by non-professionals such as friends and family. While friends and family usually mean well they usually have no experience on how to interview an alleged victim in such a way as to gather reliable statements and evidence.
In fact, by the time the police, doctors, or child protective services (CPS) take an alleged sex crime victim's statement the statement has often been amended to reflect the non-professional interviewer's version of events (especially true with very young children reporting sex abuse). Tracing these initial statements in an attempt to evaluate the evidentiary value is time consuming, costly, and met with objection from family, police, CPS, and prosecutors.
In addition, only seasoned criminal defense attorneys with a successful trial record in defending sex crimes should handle any sex crime case. This is because sex crimes are generally prosecuted by seasoned district attorneys who are competent trial lawyers themselves and there is enormous pressure on the office of the district attorney to pursue sex crimes convictions.
Note: Most sex crimes such as human trafficking , rape, child molestation, lewd acts on a minor, pimping by force, pandering by force, sodomy, forced sexual penetration with object, and sexual assault are considered serious and violent felonies. This means that the sex crime criminal charge carries a longer prison sentence than other types of felonies. In addition, these types of charges are considered strikes under California Three Strikes Law, and the defendant is usually ordered to serve a higher percentage of time for any sex crime conviction (usually 85% of sentence even with time off for good behavior).
In addition, many non-violent sex crimes, such as misdemeanor charges of annoying or molesting a child can carry harsher consequences than violent non-sex crimes.
It is common knowledge that most convicted sex offenders are required to register as sex offenders with local police in California, but other penalties associated with sex crimes convictions include jail, prison, probation restrictions, stay away orders, fines, loss of professional or occupational license, loss of immigration status (for non-U.S. citizens), and even restriction on where the defendant can live.
Finally, sex crimes are precluded by law to be plea bargained in many cases (See California Penal Code section 1192.7). In addition, the statute of limitations for many sex crimes such as child molestation, rape, and human trafficking, is much longer than other types of criminal charges. In fact, the statute of limitations does not even begin to run in many sex crimes until many years after the alleged incident and until the alleged victim makes a report to law enforcement (See California Penal Code sections 799-803 on the statute of limitations for crime, and section 803 for most lewd acts on a minor allegations).
The embarrassment, social stigma, financial cost, and emotional toll that comes from being accused of any sex crime seems insurmountable and can ruin a person's life even if the defendant is ultimately vindicated or the case is dismissed.
