Have you or someone you know been charged with a gang crime? More than 1,400 criminal street gangs exist in Los Angeles County, committing crimes ranging from graffiti to armed robbery to murder. Because of this, the County is especially focused on prosecuting gang crimes and stopping gang violence. The Los Angeles County D.A.’s office aggressively prosecutes criminal gang activity with more than 50 specially trained and experienced lawyers in the Hardcore Gang Division. Under the Street Terrorism and Prevention Act, deputy district attorneys are allowed to seek harsher penalties for gang members.
In light of the intense concentration that is focused on gang activity by local law enforcement and County prosecutors, anyone charged with a gang-related crime faces stiffer punishments and little chance of leniency. Even first-time gang-related offenders are prosecuted vigorously and to the fullest extent of the law.
