  1. Hello, I have found myself on the spot with and attorney that sold me out to a District attorney by the attorney with out knowing what I was getting into. It goes like this, Last December I was living in a apartment complex with my wife of 20 years. I had a female neighbor call the Costa Mesa police and stated that I told her that I wanted to suck her pussy after hearing me say this to my wife and my wife told the police that I was speaking to her. By making this statement I ended up in jail for 647 (a) lewd conduct. Once it was determined that there was no lewd conduct committed my attorney told me that I need to plead guilty to disturbing the peace and do community service or I will do 2 years in jail, and I was backed against the wall with a choice between jail or plea. I took the plea. I was told that I would of never got this deal if I committed this crime. My rights were violated right in the middle of a hearing of writ of mandate at the State level. I have spent thousands of dollars and have not committed a crime in 20 years, and all of a sudden I end up in jail because some lady said that I made a statement to her when I didn’t. This is a violation of my civil rights of freedom of speech. What is your opinion on this issue? I may need a civil rights attorney.
