November 2023 – Big win recently, on November 8, 2023 Federal Child Pornography Case. U.S Attorney argued for a guidelines sentence of 10 years in jail. We argued for NO time. Judge agreed with us and client is home on probation. Judge said this is the biggest downward departure from federal guidelines he has ever given in 35 years in the bench. A very happy client.

Removal from Sex Offender Registry (Jan, 2022)
Another major victory was secured on January 21st, 2022, on behalf of Curtis Lee M. After being required to register as a sex offender in the state of California for over 20 years (originally sentenced in 1999), we were able to file a writ of mandate with the Alameda Superior Court securing Mr. Lee’s removal from the California Department of Justice Sex Registration Registry. The tragedy of this case lies in its origin as a consensual statutory rape charge, which (from the onset) should not have involved a requirement to register as a sex offender. We are honored to serve our clients needs, allowing him to move forward with his life minus the societal stigma of sexual registration.
Thank You from Client Removed from Sex Offender Registry (April, 2022)
"A year ago, I call around seeking help, from not just any one ready to handle my case. I wasn’t sure of the run around from the opposing party that has been going on for years. I decide I’m ready to trust. Now, my case has been settled completely in my favor, thanks to everyone at Beles & Beles Law Offices who handled the case. Quotes had gone through two other attorneys before I decided to hire the Beles & Beles Law Offices and I couldn’t be happier with my decision of the years of experience within the firm, the new to the season vet’s. They were compassionate and understanding of my needs and were able to help me resolve my matters at a fraction of the cost that I would’ve spent on other attorneys. And that was a life changing period in my life, I’m so grateful for the opportunity to live life with family and friends the best that one can. Thank you. thank you…..."

Rights of Victims
There are some important California Code of Civil Procedure statutory rights that victims have. Frequently victims do not want to proceed with the changes for very valid personal reasons, however, the District Attorney will not inform a victim of these rights. Call us, we will explain the rights of both sides of the criminal prosecution. A victim’s rights are often the key to the case.
