Gang Violence Law in Chula Vista
In California, gang violence is not tolerated by local and state governments. In an effort to discourage gang activity, the state has established laws that strictly punish those who participate in gangs.
Gang violence crimes are dealt with by the criminal justice system in three main ways, including:
- You can be charged for the crime of actively participating in a gang
- A misdemeanor charge could be elevated to a felony charge if the crime was committed for the benefit of a gang
- A gang-related crime subjects an offender to the possibility of enhanced sentencing
If you have been accused of being involved in gang activity, you need a knowledgeable criminal defense lawyer who has extensive experience handling these types of cases and a proven track record of success. Contact attorney Troy Owens right now to discuss your legal options to fight against your charges.
What Is Gang Enhancement?
If a prosecution team can prove that a crime was committed by a gang member or on behalf of a gang, they can appeal to gang enhancement laws. Gang enhancement allows prosecutors to strive for harsher penalties to be imposed on defendants for certain types of crimes. The additional penalties could result in anywhere from an additional one to ten years in prison.
