Juvenile Defense Lawyers
Gang-related offenses in Nevada are heavily prosecuted. Often, gang members who have been charged with a crime face additional enhancements because of their gang affiliation. Gang members, even those who have been charged with a crime for the first time, will be prosecuted harshly and rarely is any leniency offered. It is in the best interests of any charged gang member to contact an experienced Las Vegas defense attorney who has specific experience handling these types of cases.
Is Your Child Charged With A Gang Offense?
Gang offenses involve any criminal offenses that gangs may be involved in. It can be for theft, drugs, violence or weapons violations. If your child has been charged, you may be concerned that your child will go to jail and be exposed to even further criminal influences. You may also be concerned that your child will get a criminal record affecting college, scholarship and future job applications.
It is crucial to obtain early attorney involvement. A competent and aggressive juvenile attorney often achieves a dropping of charges by strong intervention in the charging process.
Where a child is charged with gang offenses, the matter will go to the prosecutor who must decide whether to press charges or not. Where the charge is serious, the prosecutor may refer the matter to the adult court system. There the child will be treated like an adult and upon conviction may be sent to the penitentiary. If the case is kept in the juvenile system, the child is more likely to receive sympathetic treatment including probation. Nevertheless, if the court deems that the child is a risk to society, the child may be incarcerated in a juvenile institution.
