Enhancements for Gang Crimes
In California, a violent crime associated with gang activity carries enhancements. Depending on the circumstances of the case, these enhancements could include mandatory jail or prison time, a significantly longer prison sentence, a life sentence without parole or even the death penalty. In addition, a conviction for a gang-related felony counts as a "strike," and three strikes can result in a life sentence. If you are charged with a gang crime, it is very important to have representation by a lawyer who understands the stakes involved and has had success in defending gang cases.
