Sex crimes against a minor not taken lightly in California

Crimes against children are not taken lightly in any state, including here in California. When reports of these types of crimes are received, local law enforcement do all they can to get to the bottom of the accusations. Recently, a man was arrested for sex crimes supposedly committed against not just one, but three children.

The 37-year-old man was taken into custody by officers of the San Bernardino County Sheriff's Department near the end of September following a preliminary investigation. According to authorities, three underage individuals were supposedly victimized by the accused. No details regarding the alleged crimes have been made public.

The accused was arrested on several charges, including lewd acts upon a minor and the sexual assault of an animal. A bail hearing has already taken place, and bail was set as $250,000. It is unknown if this individual has posted bail or if he remains in custody. At this time, there have been no further reports regarding future court proceedings for this matter.

Clearly, accusations of sex crimes against a minor are serious offenses in California. This individual faces several potential consequences, including jail and/or prison time, fines, court ordered counseling and registration on the Sex Offender Registry. All of these can wreak havoc on a person's personal and professional life. With so much at stake, this individual would likely benefit from an experienced criminal defense team working on his behalf. With the guidance and insight offered by legal counsel, the accused can make informed legal decisions that can help him get through this difficult situation by focusing on achieving the best possible outcome.
