Gang Crimes in Modesto
Increased Penalties for Gang-Related Offenses
It is a fact that gang members engage in a higher level of serious and
violent crimes than their non-gang-involved peers. The Law Offices of
Mark Girdner provide legal representation to clients charged with gang-related offenses. Penalties for gun violence,
drug crimes, and
violence can be more severe if there is a gang affiliation.
A gang enhancement can add 5, 10, or 25 years to life in prison on top
of an underlying charge. Drive-by shootings and hate crimes add another
extension to your penalties. Modesto Criminal Defense Attorney Mark Girdner
can handle high-stakes criminal cases and navigate the legal system to
try to prevent a gang enhancement in your case.
Additional Penalties for Severe Crimes
Any charge can come with a gang enhancement if the suspect committed the
crime for the benefit of promoting a criminal street gang.
The penalties for a gang enhancement to your crime include:
- Additional years in prison
- An automatic felony conviction for drive-by shootings
- A strike in the California Three Strikes Law
- The inability to find work or housing in the future
- A permanent mark on your criminal record
