Gang Homicide Defense in Santa Ana
Call Upon a Hard-Hitting Criminal Defense Lawyer
California takes a hard line when it comes to gang-related cases. Harsh
penalties are administered for criminal actions thought to be performed
on behalf of a gang. Additionally, vast amounts of resources are solely
devoted to investigating and prosecuting gang-related cases, particularly
murder and manslaughter. Defending individuals charged with gang homicide requires
aggressive and highly skilled representation.
If you have been charged with a gang homicide, I can provide the experienced
legal counsel you require. My name is Attorney Jerry Schaffer, Jr., and
for over 25 years I was a successful prosecutor with the Orange County
District Attorney's Office. I handled hundreds of felonies and misdemeanors,
including complicated gang-related offenses.
My experience has equipped me with a keen understanding of the types of
strategies the state may employ to boost their charges and inflate sentencing.
As a seasoned
Santa Ana criminal defense attorney, I can provide the rigorous and insightful representation you need to
challenge a relentless criminal justice system. For a detailed explanation of how I can assist you,
contact my office to request a case consultation.
Complex Nature of Gang Crime Allegations
There are numerous statutes in the California penal code that apply specifically
to gang-related activity. Unfortunately, they are complex and changing
almost daily. Individuals charged with any gang-related allegations need
astute legal counsel that is up to date on all current laws and verdict trends.
The courts are exceptionally punitive toward individuals convicted of gang-related
offenses, even if the individual charged is not an actual gang member.
If a prosecutor is able to invoke the gang enhancement law, the defendant
faces mandatory additional prison time. This can range from five years to life.
If you are facing gang homicide charges, I can deliver the tenacious advocacy
you need to vigorously challenge the gang enhancement, including the following:
- Dispute your suspected gang affiliation
- Contest the supposed gang benefit of the crime in question
- Oppose the legality of the gang enhancement to your case
