Gang Related Charges

California harbors many gangs, and if you happen to be caught in the wrong place at the wrong time, it’s possible to be charged with a gang-related crime by association. Unfortunately, there are many cases of people being charged with gang-related crimes when they actually did nothing that would normally warrant an arrest or charge. For example, you could be charged with gang-related activity, if you were photographed with an individual flashing a gang sign, if you have been arrested for vandalism, or even if you received mail from a known gang member.

Many of these criteria for an arrest can seem completely ridiculous to people not in law enforcement, and may seem to border on the infringement of your rights. Many laws are crafted with good intentions but fail to apply to the context of the actual situation.

It is likely that some of the suspects could have been wrongfully accused of these crimes.
