Attorney Michael Guisti Was Mentioned in the O.C. Register Regarding the D.A.’s “Shaming” Tactic Intended to Fight Prostitution

By Michael Guisti on October 10, 2014

Orange County criminal defense attorney Michael L. Guisti has practiced law for more than 15 years. During that time, he has built a strong reputation and a track record of success. He has also been featured in local media, including reputable news sources such as the Orange County Register.

In one particular article by the O.C. Register, Attorney Guisti voiced his skepticism about a “shaming” tactic that D.A. Tony Rackauckas implemented in an attempt to deter sex purchasers.

The article explains how the District Attorney’s Office thinks that publicizing the actions of convicted sex purchasers will deter future offenders. Some agencies and criminal justice professionals were for it, and some against it—Attorney Guisti fell into the latter.

In the article, Attorney Guisti is described as a lawyer “whose client list typically includes several prostitution customers at any given time.” He is stated to have argued that the shaming tactic “would further punish the convicted but not really deter others.”

Solid Defense Against False Charges of Prostitution

There are many circumstances that can result in false accusations and an arrest for prostitution. Maybe you were just in the wrong place at the wrong time. Maybe a police officer mistook you for a prostitute. Maybe you didn’t know that the person you were speaking to was a prostitute, or you were “busted” in a sting operation by an undercover cop when you were not intending to solicit a prostitute.

Whatever the case may be, Attorney Michael L. Guisti has a long history of defending clients who have been arrested under charges of prostitution.
