Gang Offenses and Improper Claims of Gang Membership
Any individual that commits a crime in association with his or her membership in a gang may be charged with a gang offense. It is important to note that crimes committed in association with an individual’s membership in a gang may carry harsher punishment than the same crime committed by an individual that is not affiliated with a gang, pursuant to Penal Code Section 186.22. Many times individuals are incorrectly labeled as gang members and this can adversely affect them for the rest of their lives. Once a person is labeled as a gang member it will stay with him or her for life. Sometimes even close association with a gang member can result in the police labeling you as a gang member regardless of whether or not you are involved with any of the gang-related activities.
An experienced attorney can help you to avoid having this improper and false label, just because you happened to know a gang member or live in a neighborhood where there is gang activity. It is always in your best interest to retain the services of an experienced and knowledgeable attorney who can help you to establish a successful defense even if you are an actual gang member.
