ORANGE COUNTY GANG CRIMES ATTORNEY

Defending Your Rights and Future in Fullerton & Oc

Gang crime cases are unique in the field of criminal defense. The community, prosecutors, judges, and even many defense lawyers view gang membership as a crime, but this is not true. Gang membership is a constitutionally protected activity under the First Amendment. "Ethnic street gangs" are generally not "criminal street gangs." Understanding the difference between a group whose members commit violent crimes, theft crimes, and juvenile crimes in order to further the group's criminal purpose and a group whose members may separately commit crimes is critical.

This distinction is often lost on the judiciary and the bar due to the hysteria brought about by the "War on Gangs." The punishment for these charges can mean life sentences for gang members who were only acting out of poverty, lack of education, and/or disenfranchisement. Our office aggressively advocates in favor of removing the stigma of gang charges and, in turn, the criminal liability of such charges.
