Strong Legal Representation In Gang-Related Cases
Many gangs target the young, recruiting teens (and even younger kids) with limited power and problematic families of origin. Poverty, educational deficiencies and a general lack of opportunity – not to mention overt threats of violence — make it hard for many youth to resist recruitment. In some cases, members are second- or even third-generation participants.
Crimes, violent and otherwise, that are thought to be gang-related may be prosecuted aggressively in the state and federal courts of Virginia. If you or someone you know has been charged with (or is under investigation for) a gang offense, get the legal advice you need, as soon as possible.
Knowledgeable, Aggressive Defense Attorneys
It is important to understand how the government views gang-specific crimes and conspiracy charges. A conspiracy conviction can subject a defendant to harsh penalties for crimes that were actually or allegedly committed by someone else.
The defense attorneys of Weisberg & Weisberg, PLLC, are aggressive and knowledgeable in Virginia and federal criminal law. We can answer questions about cases involving:
- Street gangs and “criminal street mobs”
- “Mandatory” minimum sentences
- Charges against juveniles under the age of 18
- Murder and manslaughter cases
- Assault, shooting, stabbing or wounding
- Weapons-related crimes
- Drug distribution and trafficking
- Defendants and suspects with previous convictions for gang offenses
- Alleged gang activity in a school zone, which carries enhanced penalties in Virginia
- Traffic stops and searches
Some gang-related crimes break state laws and federal laws. Every criminal case is different.
