Torrance Criminal Defense Lawyers
Incorporated in 1921, Torrance is located in the South Bay area of Los Angeles County in California. The city resides on 20.553 square miles of land, and had a population of over 145,000 at the time of the 2010 U.S. Census, making it the eighth most populated city in Los Angeles County, and the 36th most populated city in California.
In 2009, the most recent year statistics have been compiled, criminal activities for the city of Torrance were as follows:
- 1 murder
- 11 arsons
- 25 rapes
- 94 assaults
- 139 robberies
- 398 auto thefts
- 442 burglaries
- 2,034 thefts
Overall, for 2009 that city was given a crime index of 161.0, while the national average was 319.2.
While these numbers are encouraging and relatively low when compared with other areas, all too often people are wrongfully accused of and charged with crimes they did not commit. Anyone who is facing criminal charges is well-advised to consult with a Torrance criminal defense attorney to find out more about the legal options available to them, as well as what they can do to protect their rights.
