young son naively applied for an Internet sponsored job, driving dance/stripper girls to parties; this to earn some side money for Christmas gifts. Unbeknownst to him he was in the wrong place, at the wrong time – involved in a police sting operation. The County Court had charges for a multiple year felony towards him.
Our son is a bright, young, college kid that we (parents) did not want to carry a stigma of a felony. He is a young career-minded person. When we learned of my son’s situation we goggled for an experienced lawyer, and the Law Office of Russell Babcock – and his associate came up. My wife and I did not want our son to end up with a record of any sort. Russell was very understanding and went through all of Aaron’s police information and other records. The worst my wife and I wanted, and felt deserving, was for him to have a “slap on the wrist”. Russell and his associate worked diligently to get this case cleared; and for total exoneration. In a pre-trial hearing, Russell methodically contested and dissected statements from the detectives. It felt great to have a knowledgeable “quarterback” working towards clearing our son’s name. Information was then determined that, during the arrest, there was no motive for my son to be charged as a “pimp”. The judge agreed and dismissed the case – right there.
Our son now has a new lease on life, and we feel he has learned his lesson of answering shady job ads on the Internet. We are grateful to have had Russell and his associate working on our side.
