Personal relationships may end, jobs may be lost, child custody may be affected, and your good name may be damaged as the result of being WRONGFULLY ACCUSED of a sex crime!
There are many instances in which innocent people are wrongly accused of sex crimes such as prostitution, solicitation, or loitering for prostitution. Merely being in the wrong place at the wrong time has resulted in the arrests of many innocent people. A more controversial situation in which people are arrested for prostitution-related crimes is called a sting operation. In a prostitution sting operation, an undercover police officer a "decoy" will pose as a prostitute and deceive the innocent victim, placing them in a compromising situation. The "John" will then be arrested for soliciting a prostitute.

If you have been arrested for the crime of attempted Lewd act on a child (PC 288, 664)under the age of 14 based on internet chat, you may be the victim of entrapment by law enforcement. Recently the authorities have been overzealous in luring persons into chatting and later contacting imaginary underage children who later turn out to be adult decoys. Our office believes many of these cases can be defended as entrapment.
In a recent case attorney Matthew Ruff was successful in getting all felony attempt 288 charges dropped in a internet sting operation in Los Angeles County. The client was facing lifelong 290 registration and jail in a case where he was caught in an internet chat room allegedly having sexually explicit conversations with a 13 year old girl. The attorney exposed weaknesses in the prosecution's case and negotiated a deal for a misdemeanor with informal probation, no jail and no 290 registration. Our office has represented numerous clients faced with attempted 288, 288.3, 288.2, attempt 647.6 charges. In virtually every case, we have been able to get charges dropped, reduced, or negotiate resolutions that do not require jail or prison sentences.
Attorney Matthew J. Ruff was retained by the family of a man falsely accused of engaging in sexual acts with children in his church, including PC 288 and forcible rape. The Lawyer conferred with the prospective client and agreed that he was being "set up" by his accuser and her family. Mr. Ruff undertook a very aggressive investigation and uncovered exonerating evidence. He took the case to the Los Angeles district attorney and persuaded them to drop all charges against his client. Within hours he walked his client out of jail a free man, and avoided a lifelong stigma of sex offender registration and embarrassment.
In another case, our client was charged with rape of his girlfriend, among other serious felony offenses. Mr. Ruff believed his client that the charges were instigated by financial motivations. He commenced an intensive defense strategy which included establishing the ulterior motives of the alleged victim. After discussing the case with the Torrance District Attorneys office, they agreed to dismiss the sex offense felonies and the client was released from jail.
In yet another recent criminal case, Matthew Ruff was retained by a mother to represent her son accused of statutory rape. The client was young and in danger of going to jail for a lengthy period of time. The Lawyer built a legal defense after meeting with the client. He went to Court and convinced the D.A. and the Judge to drop all charges and the client was released to his family a free man.
