Gang Crimes Long Beach
Law enforcement agencies in the Greater Long Beach Area are heavily focused on reducing the prevalence of gangs and gang-related crimes. A person accused of a gang-related crime will face harsher penalties and may be denied any leniency than one accused of a similar crime without the gang connections.
Gang Related Crimes Defense
Harsh penalties and dire consequences for gang violence makes it all the more important that you contact a who has experience with gang-related crimes and can come to your defense swiftly and aggressively. There may be compelling evidence against you or you may be completely innocent. No matter what the existing circumstance, a skilled gang crime defense attorney can mitigate the consequences and explore the options in building an effective defense.
Gang crimes are essentially the same as other types of crimes, but with that added component of gang involvement. We could be talking about robbery or burglary or drug crimes. We could be talking about weapons charges or assault or juvenile crimes. No matter the type of crime, the penalties tend to be harsher when there is gang involvement.
Depending on the offense, you could be facing lifelong sex offender registration, heavy fines, life in prison or even the death penalty. The label of "gang member" can follow you for the rest of your life and that alone will close many doors and end many opportunities that would be better if they were open to you.
A critical component of a skilled defense is the protection of the rights of the accused.
