Sexual Battery is a sex crime which is defined by California penal code section 243.4(a), which reads in part:

“Any person who touches an intimate part of another person while that person is unlawfully restrained by the accused or an accomplice and if the touching is against the will of the person touched and is for the purpose of sexual arousal, sexual gratification or sexual abuse, is guilty of sexual battery.”

Sexual battery is a wobbler offense, meaning it may be charged as a misdemeanor punishable by imprisonment in the county jail up to one year and/or a fine of $2,000, or as a felony, punishable by imprisonment in the state prison for 2, 3, or 4 years and/or a fine up to $10,000 as a felony.

In addition, a conviction will mandate lifetime registration as a sex offender, pursuant to Penal Code Section 290.

I rarely need an attorney but when I have, Michael has been very attentive to detail, hard working and imaginative. One time when other attorneys essentially refused the work, saying I should walk away from the issue, Michael and his team were able to find a solution to the problem with very positive results
