Gang Cases

Enhanced Penalties for Gang-Related Crimes

When a person is charged with any type of crime they will face penalties if they wind up being convicted. Those that are found to be in association with a street gang will face tougher, more enhanced charges and penalties and will almost always be subject to an increase in jail or prison time if convicted. If you or someone you know is facing charges or is currently under investigation for any type of gang-related criminal activities, your first step should be to speak with a competent Orange County criminal defense lawyer about the circumstances of your charges and legal situation.

If you waive your right to an attorney, or put your fate in the hands of an inexperienced lawyer, it is likely that your case will end up with an unfavorable result and you could face:

  • A strike in our state's Three Strikes Laws
  • Incarceration in jail or state prison
  • Large fines
  • Probation
  • Community service
  • A negative impact on your legal record, possibly permanent and not eligible for future expungement. You will have a difficult time finding and keeping a job or home when arrests, charges and a conviction for gang-related crimes are on your record. Most employers and leasing agencies conduct background checks on applicants.
