Police in Inglewood are asking for the public’s help in finding a 49-year-old man who they believe sexually molested two girls, including one girl who says she has been abused by the man since she was 7 years old. According to a news report in the Daily Breeze, the girl, who is the daughter of the man’s girlfriend, recently came forward with the complaint. The second victim is now an adult. The Los Angeles District Attorney’s office has apparently filed two felony counts of child molestation against the man and has issued an arrest warrant with bail set at $1 million.
Sex crime charges, especially those involving young children or minors are extremely serious. If convicted of these charges, you could be looking at lengthy jail or state prison time, hefty fines and penalties, and required sex offender registration for the rest of your life. Your job and your career could be in jeopardy, and even finding a place to live can become a problem because of the stigma that sex offenders face in our society today.
Very often, individuals are falsely accused of sex crimes – sometimes because of misunderstanding and some other times, just for spite.
