For clients like Mr. Kamin who are mentally ill, treatment is definitely more appropriate than the typical punishments for criminal offenders.

Pennsylvania defendant Philip Kamin suffers from a variety of mental health disorders including schizophrenia; he has made threats against Pennsylvania residents (Complaint #18096895) and fled the state to avoid charges. He eventually wound up in California where police tracked him down. Philip Kamin was extradited back to Pennsylvania.

California Criminal Defense Attorneys, Ken Rosenfeld and Allen Sawyer, were brought on the case to defend Philip Kamin. Ken Rosenfeld and Allen Sawyer were able to successfully help get Kamin’s charges dismissed due to his state of mental health, provided that he attends outpatient mental health facilities. California Attorneys Ken Rosenfeld and Allen Sawyer say they are pleased with the DA’s decision to send Kamin for treatment.

“It is no small thing when criminal charges involve the state attorney general,” said Rosenfeld, an experienced practitioner of mental health law in California. “For clients like Mr. Kamin who are mentally ill, treatment is definitely more appropriate than the typical punishments for criminal offenders.”
