The presence of gangs in Riverside County, and among other urban centers across the country, is on the rise. This increase has also resulted in an increase in arrests for gang-related crimes. Whether the charges relate to theft, drug sales or an assault, their relationship to gangs makes them much more complicated and the outcomes more serious.

Gang Crime: Upping the Ante
Social and political pressure to deal with the increase in gangs has led to more complex laws related to gang crimes. A normal felony for robbery, drive-by shooting, drug dealing or assault can turn into a life sentence when connected to gang activity. Law enforcement has stepped up their efforts, in effect declaring war on gangs in Riverside County. If your criminal arrest can be connected with gang activity, you face serious penalties if convicted.
