Experienced Kings County Criminal Defense Lawyer in Gang Crimes Cases
If you have been charged with any type of crime and the prosecutor’s office has added a gang affiliation enhancement, it is critically important to get early assistance from a knowledgeable and aggressive criminal defense lawyer.
Your attorney will conduct an independent investigation into the incident that led to your arrest. Your lawyer will also want to get detailed information about your background, your friends and associates and other information that will help argue against the gang crime enhancement.
Have You Been Accused of Gang Activity in Hanford or Lemoore?
Gang-related crimes are heavily prosecuted in the Central Valley, particularly in Kings and Fresno Counties. Gang members, even those with no prior record, are generally prosecuted very harshly. It is rare for prosecutors and judges to offer any leniency whatsoever when it comes to gang-related crimes. This is why it is very important for individuals who belong to gangs to secure an experienced defense attorney immediately after being accused of any crime. Do not talk to law enforcement officers before first speaking with a defense lawyer. Even if you believe you are being cooperative, know that anything you say can be used against you. Working with an knowledgeable defense lawyer helps protects your rights.
