Gang Crime Charges Are Different
Prosecutors know that proving gang-related crime charges can be difficult. To convict a defendant of a gang crime, the prosecutor must prove that a crime has been committed, the defendant was the one who committed that crime and the defendant had an affiliation/relationship with a gang or gang member. Experienced criminal defense attorneys like ours have intimate knowledge of the many defenses that are available to defendants charged with a gang-related offense.
