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.

If the Law Offices Of Nelson, Fromer, Crocco & Jordan handles your gang-related criminal case, we will aim to show that the prosecutor cannot prove that you committed a criminal act or that you were involved with a criminal street gang.
