Defense Against Gang-Related Charges
If a law enforcement officer convinces a prosecutor that you committed a crime while you were associated with a criminal street gang, you may be charged and penalized at a higher degree than would be the case without the gang affiliation.
New Jersey state law defines the crime of gang criminality as: “while knowingly involved in criminal street gang activity, [committing], [attempting] to commit, or [conspiring] to commit…a crime.” Alleged proof of gang association may include words, paraphernalia, tattoos, clothing and other indications of gang activities.
