If you’ve been accused of gang crimes or if you are a parent of a juvenile that has been charged with a gang-related crime, make sure you have an experienced criminal defense attorney fighting for your rights. When gang associations are part of a criminal charge, enhanced penalties of the criminal charge will be added. Our legal team has taken on numerous so-called “gang-related” defense cases only to discover that the accused client was not a gang member or the crime was not committed for a gang or on the behalf of a gang.
At the Law Offices of Krause & Hirschhorn, P.C., we are dedicated to representing clients facing any type of gang related crime. As trial lawyers with extensive trial experience and a legal practice devoted to criminal defense, we provide our clients with the dedicated legal representation they rightfully deserve. Our skill and insight into the California legal system could mean the difference in your gang crime case.

Gang Crime Charges

In Ventura, Los Angeles and Santa Barbara Counties you may be accused of one or more crimes that are considered gang activities, such as:

  • Drug crimes
  • Underage drinking
  • Minor in possession
  • Vandalism or graffiti
  • Fraud
  • Auto theft
  • Carjacking
  • Hate crimes
  • Theft or robbery
  • Sexual assault
  • Assault
  • Domestic violence
  • Possession of a firearm
  • Attempted murder
  • Homicide

Protect Your Legal Rights

Any gang involvement claimed by the prosecutor will make the charges or potential penalties more severe, including an enhanced prison sentence and strikes added to your record. Even if there really isn’t any gang involvement, the clothes, neighborhood, friends or even a person’s ethnic background can all be unfairly taken as evidence of gang involvement. Prosecutors, judges and juries know the public do
not like gangs or gang activity, and they may be willing to punish an alleged gang crime more harshly than other criminal charges.
