Experienced Defense Against Gang-Related Crime Charges
Governments at all levels are taking drastic measures to reduce gang-related crime. State and local agencies in Florida have created databases that contain the names of people with gang affiliations. In addition, law enforcement agencies have created task forces to crackdown on gang activity. If you have been suspected of committing a crime that promotes or benefits a gang, the state can seek enhanced charges. For example, if you are charged with a first-degree misdemeanor, but the prosecution has evidence that you committed the crime to help a gang, it can charge you with a third-degree felony. If you, your child or someone else you love has been accused of a gang-related crime, it is absolutely critical to have a law firm that can prepare a tough defense.
Accused Of A Gang Crime? Our Criminal Defense Attorneys Are Ready To Help.
At Escobar & Associates, we understand that the stigma of being associated with a gang is hard to overcome. Our Tampa defense lawyers will use every tool at their disposal to show that you or your child is not in a gang. At the same time, we will work to dismiss the criminal charges you face.
Too many times, the police will jump to conclusions about gang involvement without sufficient evidence. For example, if your child sometimes wears clothing of a color associated with local gangs, and he or she has a friend or acquaintance who is in a gang, that could be enough for the police to label your child as a gang member. Our law firm is prepared to challenge any statement that you or your child is involved in a gang. We understand just how much is riding on the outcome of these cases and will take decisive action aimed at minimizing the potential consequences.
