Authorities arrested a man wanted for Pacific Beachsex crimes in Los Angeles. According to police, a Pacific Beach woman awoke to find a man sexually assaulting her in her home. The man fled before police arrived. They believe he entered the home through an open window.
The incident took place October 1, but authorities did not arrest him until today. San Diego Police identified the man as a suspect, and released an image of him to the public last week. Authorities in Los Angeles arrested the suspect without incident just after 4:00 AM.
Police also said that the suspect, who is 55, was enrolled as a student at San Diego City College and San Diego Miramar College. The assault took place off campus and is not associated with either facility.
Los Angeles sex crimes lawyer
When you face charges related to a sexual offense, hire an experienced sex crimes lawyer like Robert Helfend. Mr. Helfend has more than 30 years of experience in criminal courtroom defense. He takes cases in Los Angeles County and throughout Southern California.
Sex offense convictions can have lifetime consequences. Most convictions for sexual offenses require lifetime registration on the state’s sex offender registry. Lifetime registration comes with restrictions that can make it difficult for convicted offenders to find appropriate housing and employment.
In addition, lifetime registration follows you wherever you go. Even if you move out of state, the registration requirement will follow you. This is a heavy price to pay. Worse, many criminal defense attorneys don’t want to handle sexual offense cases. That can make it difficult to get the representation you need in court.
Don’t settle for an inexperienced attorney and don’t assume that there’s nothing you can do. Hire an experienced criminal defense attorney and see what a difference it can make in the outcome of your case.
