It went from a state prison case with lifetime registration to a misdemeanor with suspended fine and no additional jail time. We are very pleased with the outcome.

California criminal defense attorney Allen Sawyer of the Law Offices of Allen Sawyer announced today that Case # CR-2019-4210705 in San Joaquin County Superior Court was settled after District Attorney Tori Verber Salazar reduced the charges for his client from felony to misdemeanor.

At the start of the jury trial, Sawyer’s client, Brian W., faced charges of contacting a minor to commit a felony and of arranging a meeting with a minor for lewd purposes. Sawyer’s opening arguments, legal motions, and exposure of evidentiary issues contributed to the DA’s reduction of the charges to misdemeanor.

The arrest of, and the charges against, Brian W. stemmed from a police decoy scenario. In such scenarios a police officer posing as a worker for an escort service extends sexual services to a text responder. After an agreement is reached, the officer claims to be a minor. Text responders who still agree to meet for the purpose of sexual services are arrested. Such an arrest brings felony charges that carry serious state prison sentences as well as lifetime sex offender registration.

Sawyer said the victory came as a great relief for his client. “It went from a state prison case with lifetime registration to a misdemeanor with suspended fine and no additional jail time,” he said. “We are very pleased with the outcome.”
