Temporary Restraining Order allegations dismissed against client on 10/23/20

FACTS: Our client is Emilio. His soon-to-be ex-wife, ERICA, went to court in Jan 2020 and accused him of various acts of violence. She tried to obtain custodial advantage of the three minor children through her claims. At her first hearing, she went alone and indicated all the levels of abuse she had endured. The initial hearing was done outside of the presence of our client. The restraining order was initially granted, as many are. However, our client, Emilio, decided to challenge the allegations of ERICA and hired our firm. We planned and prepared a vigorous defense.

Our trial started on October 23, 2020 in San Bernardino Superior Court. The petitioner, ERICA, brought two witnesses with her to claim that she was violently confronted by EMILIO. Mr. Feyzjou of KIA LAW FIRM aggressively defended against these false allegations of domestic violence. We were able to obtain video footage of the incident and there was no violence that occurred at the location where she indicated.

As a result of our tenacious defense, the court DISMISSED ALL RESTRAINING ORDERS that were initially granted against our client, EMILIO.

Our client’s name is now clear.

What is the moral of the story? If your tooth hurts, you go to the dentist. You don’t self-diagnose and try to treat it yourself because you simply cannot fix your own issue. With criminal and restraining order matters, if you are falsely accused of committing acts that you did not commit, hire a competent lawyer to come to your aid.

The stigma of having a criminal record or a valid restraining order against you is horrendous. Don’t assume you know what you’re doing. There is an old saying, “you get what you pay for”. Invest in your future and fight against frivolous claims that ruins lives, families and careers.

FELONY CONVICTION NO LONGER A BAR TO JURY SERVICE New Criminal Law of 2020

The California State Legislature made a number of changes last term that impacts how we practice criminal law in California.

 

FELONY CONVICTION NO LONGER A BAR TO JURY SERVICE

 

  • Senate Bill 310 modified Code of Civil Procedure Section 203.
  • Under the previous rule, If you have been convicted of a felony or malfeasance in office and have not had your civil rights restored, you cannot serve as a juror.
  • Under the new rule, a felony conviction is no longer an automatic disqualification for jury service.
    • Exceptions:
      • Persons who have been convicted of a felony and are currently on parole, post-release community supervision, felony probation, or mandated supervision for the conviction of a felony.
      • Persons who are currently required to register as a sex offender pursuant to Section 290 of the Penal Code based on a felony conviction
    • Among the historical justifications for excluding felons from jury service are the belief that these individuals lack character and harbor an inherent bias, both against the government and in favor of the defendant.
    • Essentially, the new law provides for a far better cross section of the population of the area served by the court.
