Disturbing the Peace - PC 415

California Penal Code Section 415 is helping keep the peace all over the city. According to PC 415, any individual under the following cases will be imprisoned to the county jail for 90 days, he will be liable to pay a fine of $4,000.00, or both:

·        If an individual unlawfully fights in the public place or he challenges some other person to fight him in the public place.

·        If an individual maliciously or willingly disturbs someone else by loud or unreasonable noise.

·        If an individual uses offensive words which can provoke violence in the public place.

PC 415 is a broadly-written law that can cover any behavior that can disturb the peace.  If you see people at a bar fighting, if you are having an argument with your neighbor because of loud music which is disturbing them then you can be charged under the provisions of the law.

Defenses to PC 415
The good news is a PC 415 charge is often hard for prosecutors to prove which makes it easier for the defense attorneys to defend your case. Before you go to court facing these charges, it is recommended to discuss your case with a criminal defense attorney to protect your rights.

The defense attorney can argue several factors, including:


·         His client did not have any criminal intent

·         His behavior was protected constitutionally

·         He has been falsely accused.

 
PC 415  is also called a “wobblet.” It means that it is on offense which allows the prosecutors to charge it as a misdemeanor or an infraction. The big brother of the “wobblet” is the “wobbler,” which is a crime that will be charged as a felony or misdemeanor.

If you have been charged with disturbing the peace, contact an experienced criminal defense attorney to fight your charges on you behalf. A conviction can be costly for your reputation and you may have to pay hefty fines. Contact Don Ho, an established criminal defense attorney, to fight for your rights!

Toddler Mauled, Uncle Pleads Not Guilty to Child Endangerment

A grandmother and her son are behind bars on Tuesday for felony child endangerment in the death of 2-year-old Samuel “Eli” Zamudio. Eli was at his grandmother’s house, in Colton, being watched by his uncle, Marco Zamudio, on September 23, 2013 when he climbed out of the window and was fatally attacked by his grandmother’s pit bull.
Samuel’s grandmother, Eustulia Zamudio, 42, and his uncle, Marco Zamudio, 23, were booked Tuesday morning on suspicion of child endangerment leading to death. The San Bernardino County District Attorney dropped charges against Eustulia on Wednesday because she was not home at the time of the mauling. Marco Zamudio pleaded not guilty to child cruelty charges Wednesday.

Samuel was attacked when he leaned out a window of the home and was then dragged across the backyard. His grandmother, who owns the home, discovered him later. Marco was at the home with Samuel and was in charge of watching over him, prosecutors contend.

Family members believe the death was merely an unfortunate accident, claiming that Marco fell asleep after working all night. The search for Samuel began around 5 p.m. on September 23. It ended about 30 minutes later Samuel’s grandmother found Samuel’s body with bite wounds to his head and neck in the family’s backyard.

Animal Control officers took custody of five pit bull mixes at the scene of the attack. It was not immediately clear how many of the dogs were involved.

California Penal Code 273a PC punished acts of child endangerment. In California, a child endangerment conviction does not require that any child suffer an actual injury. Therefore, it is easy for innocent people to face prosecution under California child endangerment laws.
