    Inglewood Criminal Defense Lawyer

    Inglewood is a city in southwestern Los Angeles county. Unlike some other LA suburbs, Inglewood does not fall under the jurisdiction of the City of Los Angeles. It is a separate city with its own government and administration. Inglewood was incorporated on February 14, 1908. The estimated population in 2019 was 108,151, and this represents a loss of about 1500 residents since the 2010 census. Inglewood has a diverse population. The 2010 census found that just over half its residents were Latino, and more than forty percent of residents were African American. Inglewood is home to both the Rams and the Chargers, which both play home games out of SoFi Stadium.

    In the event that you have been accused of a crime in the area, you should call the Inglewood criminal defense attorneys at the Law Offices of David Chesley as soon as you can. Our experienced team is standing by to defend your rights and resolve your case as favorably as possible.

    The Collateral Consequences of a Criminal Conviction

    When a defendant is charged with a crime, they face sentencing that can include fines, fees, restitution, and time in jail or prison. But these direct consequences are not the only painful outcome of a criminal conviction. Criminal convictions also carry collateral consequences. The fallout from a criminal conviction can last for years or even for the rest of your life. Therefore, it is absolutely critical that you hire a defense attorney as soon as you learn of a criminal investigation against you. The sooner a defense lawyer becomes involved in your case, the better options they will have for mitigating the damage of a criminal conviction.

    So what exactly are the collateral consequences of a criminal conviction? One of the most important issues that come up is parenting rights. If you are convicted of a crime, this can usually be used as evidence against you in the family court. Family court judges make parenting orders based on the best interest of the child. As a result, a judge can determine that awarding custody to a parent with a criminal record is not in the child’s best interest and so denying parenting rights on this basis. The most severe restriction is awarding sole custody to the other parent. In this case, the parent with a criminal record would not be allowed any parenting time, now would have the right to make legal decisions on behalf of the child. Because this is such a dramatic impairment on your rights as a parent, it usually only occurs when the crime is very serious (such as homicide or sexual assault). Crimes against children are also scrutinized very carefully by the parenting court. If your conviction was for child abuse, child endangerment, sexual conduct with a minor, or any other crime against a child, you are likely to have your parenting rights limited in some way. The restriction does not have to be permanent or even complete. Many parents have the right to limited parenting time even if the other parent has sole custody. In some cases, the family judge orders supervised parenting time on a temporary basis until the parent proves that there is no danger to the child. These restrictions can be painful, but they are also temporary.

    Another right that is frequently an issue is gun ownership. Once you have a felony conviction on your record, you are a prohibited possessor of firearms. This right can be restored in some cases once your sentence is over and you have met all administrative requirements (such as paying restitution and court costs). That process is not automatic. If they are eligible, the defendant must file a petition to have their gun rights restored and then make their case to a judge. Some gun rights can never be restored. The Brady Handgun Bill prevents anyone who is convicted of a domestic violence offense from possessing a firearm for the rest of their life. Even minor misdemeanors, such as disturbing the peace, can revoke your gun rights if there is a component of domestic violence in the crime. This ban is permanent. You cannot petition to have it restored later. Unless the conviction is later overturned entirely, you will be unable to lawfully own a gun for the rest of your life.
