Candice Fields was recently a legal analyst for the news story of an El Dorado father who has been charged with crimes against his daughter. According to CBS News 13 Sacramento,
"A father in El Dorado County, California was arrested on felony charges in November 2023. The charges include:
- Child abuse
- Human trafficking
- Transporting a minor under 16 for sex and rape
- Pimping for a prostitute over 16
- Using a minor for an obscene matter
The charges stem from allegations that the father was involved in a scheme where his 16-year-old daughter sold nude photos online. The El Dorado County Sheriff's Office opened an investigation in August 2023. They executed a search warrant at the father's home and arrested him on November 15. He was arraigned on November 17."

A Reminder of The Foundation of Our Legal System
While the details of this case are indeed serious and have garnered significant attention, it is essential to remember the cornerstone of our legal system: the presumption of innocence. Every individual is considered innocent until proven guilty in a court of law. This principle upholds the integrity of our justice system, ensuring that every person receives a fair trial and that guilt must be established beyond a reasonable doubt. Candice Fields is commited to this fundamental right, advocating tirelessly for the fair treatment and legal rights of all clients. Remember, an accusation is not a conviction, and legal representation is a vital component in navigating the complexities of the justice system.
