Gang Crime Los Angeles Defense Lawyers


Invoking California's "gang enhancement" law is a technique used by the prosecution to up the ante on any crime. An allegation of involvement in a criminal street gang can transform a simple misdemeanor charge, like shoplifting or trespassing, into a felony crime with consequences that include hard time in prison.

The law gives an extremely vague definition of a street gang. This opens the door to abuse of the law's intent. Today, young people who have any contact with the criminal justice system are frequently charged with gang crime—particularly if they are members of a racial minority.
