I am just looking it to it
It means 2 things:
1) That the accused is charged with a very serious sex crime that carries the possibility of life in prison and
2) That the accused needs a top notch 305 criminal defense lawyer.
Wishing whomever luck and hoping that I have been helpful in answering your question.
First, second and third: No attorney-client relationship exists by virtue of any Q&A with Michael A. Haber, Esq. on Avvo. Fourth: Anything that you post on Avvo (or on similar sites) or on any social media is by its nature public. It is essentially an admission / confession and can be introduced into evidence as a statement against your interest in a subsequent legal proceeding. Once posted you lose any reasonable expectation of privacy, so, as this is an open forum (with no privilege attached), please be extra careful when considering what to post online (forewarned is forearmed.)
Human trafficking: Basically slavery, using a human in exchange for money, prostitution, for example.
V<18 Victim is alleged to be under the age of 18.
COMM SEX means commercial sexual activity.
PBL: Punishable. By. Life. Life in prison.
Do not discuss your case publicly or online. Mr. Haber is right, this is an extremely serious offense. Run, do not walk, to your nearest, competent criminal defense attorney for help. Speak to no one about the facts of this case. Say nothing to no one except your attorney.
AVVO comments and responses are not legal advice and only general legal information. No attorney-client relationship exists.
