On July 11, 2016 a Friedman Law Firm client was sentenced to an effective 180 days on home electronic monitoring and grant of felony probation. This client faced a maximum of 3 years state prison for a felony violation of PC 314(1) — indecent exposure. Prior to retaining the firm, client had previously been convicted of this same offense three times, and had suffered a misdemeanor conviction for failing to register as a sex offender. Because of his criminal history, this client was presumed ineligible for probation and faced mandatory state prison time.
Client’s attorney, Ryan Friedman, worked with the client and a certified behavior counselor, Ralph Rast, in order to create evidence to mitigate the charges. Mr. Friedman was able to persuade the Sacramento County District Attorney that his client’s participation in behavioral therapy would be more appropriate solution than incarceration.
