Penal Code section 316, Keeping a Disorderly House for the Purposes of Prostitution, Granted Office Hearing and Charges Not Filed!

Recently in Los Angeles County our client was cited for violating Penal Code section 316, Keeping a Disorderly House for the Purposes of Prostitution. Our client was an employee of a motel in Los Angeles County and allegedly rented a room to undercover police officers who stated that they were renting the room for the purposes of prostitution. Our client rented the room to the undercover officers and was later cited for violating Penal Code section 316. Our client was granted an office hearing. At the office hearing, our client was given an opportunity to explain his behavior and with our legal advice and assistance, the hearing officer decided not to file charges against him.

This is a great result that will protect our client’s immigration status and criminal record.
