A Mission Viejo tattoo artist has been accused of molesting a 14-year-old girl and may be charged with molesting three others, authorities claim. There is no word on the 29-year-old man's planned criminal defense to these charges. He has been charged with felony lewd acts in connection with an alleged incident involving two young girls, although police have only charged him with crimes against one of the victims.The incident was brought to the attention of authorities when the parents of one girl allegedly found information that the man had contacted their daughter via Facebook. The police described the contact as "highly inappropriate" and claim that it included sexual references.
Breaking and entering into cars is a relatively common crime that rarely nets a suspect, and most people who have items stolen from their cars do not see their property again. However, police in Garden Grove believe they may have good news for hundreds of victims of car theft in Los Alamitos and neighboring burgs over the last few years after they discovered a "wall-to-wall" treasure trove of stolen goods found in a suspect's home. The police noticed a common pattern in auto burglary cases beginning two years ago, when a white Range Rover was reported in the area around the time of each theft. Finally, a witness was able to note the license number of the vehicle, and a visit to the home of the car's owner revealed hundreds of stolen items, including laptops, cell phones, a handgun, more than 100 California licenses and almost $10,000 in cash along with other items.
Facing a criminal charge can be one of the most stressful experiences for residents in Orange County and across the country, especially when the charge is publicized in the media. Although some charges, such as a drunk driving charge, cannot always be dropped, a strong criminal defense can help mitigate the consequences of such an allegation. Jail time or a suspended license resulting from a DUI conviction can lead to serious issues when it comes to a person's job, as well as damage their reputation.
