Gang Crimes Defense Lawyer in Riverside
Part Of A Gang And Were Arrested In Riverside?
I Have A Successful Track Record Helping Gang Members
District Attorneys throughout southern California have recently taken an extremely aggressive approach to any individuals accused of a crime who they believe are members of a criminal street gang. California laws permit the prosecutor to charge an individual with a separate crime of actively participating in a street gang, or with an enhancement that can lead to an exponentially longer sentence, in some situations, 25 years to life.
A gang related conviction can require registration as a gang member, probation, jail time, and even lengthy prison sentences. Furthermore, the allegations of being a gang member carry a stigma when attempting to defend yourself from other charges that can be incredibly prejudicial. Having an experienced attorney who knows how to properly defend you against potential gang charges at early stages is crucial.
At the Law Offices of Graham Donath, our practice areas include:
- Active Participation in a Criminal Street Gang
- Criminal Street Gang Enhancement
- Soliciting Participation in a Criminal Street Gang
- Failure to Register as a Gang Member
Many of the potential gang related charges are considered serious or violent charges, subjecting you to California’s Three Strikes sentencing scheme. Many of these laws are particularly complicated and require the skills and experience of an aggressive and knowledgeable attorney who has the expertise handling gang crimes to handle your matter effectively. Hiring the right criminal defense attorney could mean the difference between a lifetime in prison and going home in time to sleep in your own bed.
