Los Angeles, CA (PRWEB) March 19, 2013
A Wallin & Klarich client, who had previously been convicted of indecent exposure in Orange County, California, was relieved of his duty to register as a sex offender after 16 years. The client was represented by California sex crimes attorney and founding partner of Wallin & Klarich, Stephen D. Klarich.
“After being forced to live with the shame of having to register as a sex offender for the past 16 years, and being forced to move out of his government assisted housing, which he lived in for the past 47 years, our client is relieved from the mortification of having to register as a sex offender for the rest of his life,” said Mr. Klarich. “He can now remain in his house and can obtain employment to support himself and his wife.”
According to court record from Orange County Superior Court Central Justice Center, the client was convicted in 1996 of indecent exposure under California Penal Code section 314.1, a misdemeanor in Orange County. As a result, the client was sentenced to 26 days in the county jail, placed on probation for three years, ordered to pay fines, and was required to register as a sex offender with law enforcement pursuant to California Penal Code 290. Previous to hiring the experienced and knowledgeable sex crime defense attorney, Mr. Klarich, the client faced having to register as a sex offender for the rest of his life.
After the client sought the help of Wallin & Klarich, he was referred to a clinical and forensic psychologist according to Wallin & Klarich. The psychologist evaluated the client and wrote a detailed report that stated the client had been rehabilitated. The report, along with other vital information about the client, was brought together by Mr. Klarich in the form of a petition for a certificate of rehabilitation and filed with the Orange County Superior Court Central Justice Center.
After the petition for a certificate of rehabilitation was filed with the Orange County Superior Court, a hearing took place. At the hearing, several other attorneys and clients were also petitioning the court for a certificate of rehabilitation according to court records. However, at the hearing the client of Wallin & Klarich was the only one granted a certificate of rehabilitation and therefore relieved of the duty to register as a sex offender. The client no longer bears the burden of having to register as a sex offender, which had severely impacted his daily life by preventing him from taking certain employment opportunities and from living in government assisted housing.
