Sexual Battery - Orange County Courts
I was charged with Felony Aggravated Assault with Force Likely to Cause Great Bodily Injury (Penal Code Section 245(a) (4) [maximum jail time 4 years prison] and Sexual Battery as a Misdemeanor (Penal Code Section 243.4 [maximum jail time 1 year, Life time registration as a sex offender].
I hired Attorney Will Bruzzo to represent me. Mr. Bruzzo convinced the Judge to reduce the case [Aggravated Assault Charge] to a misdemeanor even though the assault was on video. We then took the case to trial and Mr. Bruzzo got the jury to find me NOT GUILTY on the sexual battery charge. I am very happy with this result. Mr. Bruzzo is a very good trial attorney and I would enthusiastically recommend him for any Assault or Sexual Battery Case.
I was charged with assault with the intent to rape (Penal Code Section 220(a); False Imprisonment effected by violence (Penal Code Section 236-237); Sexual Battery (Penal Code Section 243.4(a); Injury to a telephone line (Penal Code Section 591); and Annoying or molesting a child (Penal Code Section 647.6(a). I was facing 12 years in prison for these charges. I hired William W. Bruzzo as my attorney because of his familiarity with the Orange County courts and his reputation for being an aggressive, effective attorney. Mr. Bruzzo set to work trying to get the charges dismissed. He was able to get several charges dismissed at the preliminary hearing. Then he filed a motion to dismiss the charges for lack of evidence under penal code section 995. With that motion he got several more charges dismissed. Finally, he set the matter for trial. On the day my trial was set to begin he had one last talk with the district attorney and managed to get all the felonies DISMISSED with credit for time served WITHOUT GOING TO TRIAL. Mr. Bruzzo’s knowledge and skill and his willingness to keep fighting for me kept me out of custody, kept me from having to register as a sex offender and otherwise saved my life. As a result I would enthusiastically recommend Mr. Bruzzo for any criminal matter.
