San Diego, California: Defense of Gang-Related Crimes
Assault Charges Criminal Defense Attorney Serving Chula Vista and Other Areas
Gang affiliation is an enhancement that prosecutors can add to an underlying criminal charge. You do not need to be a member of a street gang for this enhancement to apply. However, if gang affiliation can be proved, then the crime becomes a “gang crime” and the potential penalties increase drastically.
Get early help from an experienced criminal defense lawyer in gang crimes cases
If you have been charged with any type of crime and the prosecutor’s office has added a gang affiliation enhancement, it is critically important to get early assistance from a knowledgeable and aggressive criminal defense lawyer.
I will conduct an independent investigation into the incident that led to your arrest. For example, I will gather detailed information about your background, your friends and associates and other information that will help defend against a gang enhancement.
