I was charged with 4 counts of Penal Code Section 245(a) (1) [Assault with a deadly Weapon] and 1 count of Penal Code Section 243(d) [Battery with Serious Injury] and Penal Code Section 314(1) [Indecent Exposure] as a misdemeanor. I also had an enhancement for Great Bodily Injury under Penal Code Section 12022.7(a).
This all arose from a physical altercation between me, a friend and several other people. I believed that I acted in self-defense throughout the situation. Despite that, I was arrested and bail was set at $50,000.00. I was facing up to 10 years in prison for these offenses and life time registration as a sex offender.
I hired attorney Will Bruzzo to represent me. Mr. Bruzzo had represented me before. Mr. Bruzzo took evidence I provided and negotiated hard with the District Attorneys. He was finally able to negotiate a deal where ALL the felonies were DISMISSED and the Indecent exposure PC 314(1) was DISMISSED.
I pled to a misdemeanor assault, Penal Code Section 240 and got informal probation and 10 weeks of Anger Management.
I am very happy with this result and I would recommend Mr. Bruzzo for any Penal Code Sections 245(a) (1) [Assault with a Deadly Weapon], 243(d) [Battery with Serious Injury] and 314(1) [Indecent Exposure] cases.
I was charged with Penal Code Section 314(1) [Indecent Exposure] and Penal Code Section 647(a) [Soliciting Another to Engage In Lewd Conduct]. It was alleged that I was masturbating with the intent to offend another person.
In addition to looking at [up to] one year in jail I was looking at lifetime registration as a sex offender. Two different witnesses alleged that I was masturbating [in public] and one told the police that I had tried to engage her while I was masturbating.
My first attorney did nothing for me. So I fired him and hired Attorney Will Bruzzo. Mr. Bruzzo made contact with the witnesses and discovered serious inaccuracies in the police report. He then spoke with the District Attorney who agreed to DISMISS the Penal Code Section 314(1) charge. [That charge requires lifetime sex offender registration]. I pled guilty to a Penal Code Section 647(a) charge; I was not sentenced to any additional jail time.
I am very happy with this result because I do not have to register as a sex offender and I was given credit for time served in jail. I would enthusiastically recommend Mr. Bruzzo for any Penal Code Section 314(1) [Indecent Exposure], Penal Code Section 647(a) [Soliciting Another to Engage in Lewd Conduct] case.
