"My actions relating to these charges were hurtful and irresponsible, and I deeply regret them," Borrevik said in the letter, later noting that many people with similar high-stress jobs do not commit crimes.
"I think the court took into consideration that he ended this early and that he has no prison record," said Deputy District Attorney Charles Gillingham, adding that he was satisfied with the resolution. Gillingham said he was primarily concerned with ensuring that the victims could avoid testifying.
The case came to light during the summer. Prosecutors said Borrevik paid a 16-year-old girl more than $1,000 for sex and tried to persuade her 17-year-old friend to meet for sex by sending explicit photos and offering money.
Borrevik was caught after the 17-year-old talked to police; a female detective posed as the teenager online.
Borrevik said in his statement to probation officials that he began to visit chat rooms for diversion while working long hours at Wilson Sonsini. He later met the first victim online. He said he thought the girl was attending junior college and believed he was acting as her "sugar daddy" by paying for sex.
The statement said Borrevik has been attending sexual counseling and also seeking marriage counseling, but has been unable to find a new job. He needed to borrow more than $20,000 from his parents for his defense.
If he finds gainful employment before he reports for his sentence, Borrevik could possibly serve his time in a work furlough, Gillingham said.
Borrevik's future as an attorney is also in doubt. According to the report, his bar license has been placed on inactive status and may be taken away completely. Complicating this is a February 2002 DUI conviction. Borrevik was disciplined by the State Bar for that incident, according to the probation report.
