Las Vegas Gang-Related Offenses

Have you been charged with a gang-related offense?

Sting operations are currently underway in this state to find and prosecute criminal offenders involved in street gangs. Nearly 300 gangs exist in this area, which has resulted in the establishment of a special law enforcement gang task force. The police and task for members tenaciously pursue arrests and convictions for any gang-related offenses, especially those involving drugs, firearms, sex crimes, hate crimes and violent crimes such as murder, assault, kidnapping, robbery and carjacking. Many gang members are immigrants or non-U.S. citizen, and can be deported and returned to their home country if they are arrested for committing a crime.

If you or a loved one has been charged with a gang-related crime, contact a knowledgeable Las Vegas criminal defense attorney for prompt legal assistance. A qualified lawyer can protect your rights and develop a strong defense to prevent imprisonment or deportation.

A person found guilty of a gang-related crime is facing potentially severe penalties, including:

  • Jail time
  • Fines
  • Restitution
  • Community service
  • Deportation (immigrants/non-U.S. citizens)

Under state laws, if an individual is convicted of a felony that promoted or assisted gang activity, the punishment will double. A person found guilty of a gang-related offense will also not be eligible for probation. When a juvenile is charged with a gang-related crime, the case may be heard in juvenile court or, depending on the severity of the crime, the juvenile may be tried as an adult.
